We were strolling around Orrang Park close to where we’re staying… A group of people brought out a trestle table, drinks and a a plastic paddling pool. They gathered around the drinks table whilst their dogs – some with festive adornments – socialised; running rings around the table yapping , fetching balls and lounging together in dog-like fashion… Never seen a doggy party before!
White Island Volcano…
We were shocked to hear about the White Island tragedy in NZ. We visited White Island ourselves in 2014 and wrote about it here in our blog. We were a little taken aback at the time about the documents (saying we understood the dangers) which we had to sign before we set off.
