A day out.

These young gentlemen were out for the day at The Rai Valley A & P show.

Some were forced to helping out  their mums who were raising funds for the local school by running a hamburger stand.  But I reckon they were there to pick up the girls

 who were otherwise engaged in the morning.

These confidant competitors were waiting for the dog show to begin.

I think they all won their divisions.

I learnt a bit more about the 'sport' of wood chopping as there was very lively commentary,

Cory, here,  is new to the game. I thought he was going to cut his toes off!

 Kiwis come prepared

to have a good time. I know I did.


  1. glad you are enjoying our lovely country! are you going to be in Auckland? I live out in the Waitakere ranges.

    1. Not this time Louise, except to change terminals ( boo hoo)

  2. Is there a fair or show every day in New Zealand? Does anybody go to work?
