    A bit of hiking on Mount Pirongia, Waikato

    Roughly eight degrees with rain announced but Mrs Hat had taken the day off for a few hours of bush-bashing in the Waikato region -

    The broccoli and blue cheese soup was excellent and my wife's quiche with Kranski sausage was . . . brilliant

    That looks lovely.

    Though I think we would have taken our mountain bikes.

    HA! Not allowed . . . bladdy bikers. There are only a few set paths with gravel, the rest is quite challenging, especially in the rain.

    It is - a bit cold, but NZ forests are amazing in their uniqueness.

    Nice!!

    Hat, I have to ask....

    Was that the kind of bush bashing your wife was expecting after taking a day off work?

    I've always wanted to do a tour of NZ on horseback. Maybe one day......
