Another Trip, This Time Southwards And Home…

The time has come to leave Wainuiomata behind us. I have had a rest, Himself took our hosts and their extended family members on what turned out to be a six hour car ride to see the hill with the longest place name in the world. The name is: ‘Taumata­whakatangihanga­koauau­o­tamatea­turi­pukakapiki­maunga­horo­nuku­pokai­whenua­kitanatahu” and I have a link to that post from our last visit below. It was a tiring day for our friend with cancer but he hadn’t actually felt up to any substantial outing for months and months so he was equally excited about enjoying a day out and tired upon their return. Little Mr and I decided to stay home and have a “chill” day, I needed a rest after several busy days and walking in the Petone Settlers museum the day before. I also knew we needed to leave shortly for the trip back to Christchurch and I would have my fill of car journeys. Now we say some misty eyed goodbyes and head back over the hill towards Wellington for the last time this trip. At least the rain has passed by and it’s a glorious day.
