We made it over the hill to the Wairarapa region yesterday, only a day later than planned. We meant to go today but the temperature was forecast to be far too hot for wimpy Wellington dwellers so we went yesterday. It was perfect – warm, a mild breeze (to keep us comfy, sunshine. Just perfect for a day trip. I am more and more ready to move there but it may be up to 15 months away before we can so that trip meant a lot to me. And a day away from the gusts of the wind we get here was priceless.
We went into the field this building is in to take closer photos and investigate inside it. I think the term is trespassing but it was worth it and we weren’t the only ones judging by the track in the grass. This place was too beautiful to simply photograph and move on.
This is the view from Mount Dick. You can pretty much see the whole of the region from there, all 5 towns worthy of being called a town.
I got to drive a lot yesterday too, well over an hour. There was an incident involved some rude guy driving right up my ass and making me lose all my confidence but you know what? He was mad cos I was going 90 on an empty country road when the limit is 100 and he couldn’t find a place to safely overtake. Eventually he passed me and tooted rudely. What he didn’t know, since he was obviously born so perfect at driving, is that the learners limit is only 70. It’s embarrassing enough to have L(oser) plates without jerks getting impatient at me and making me cry. So next time when I get some guy revving it up my tail I’m just going to give him a hell of a fright as I slow right on down to 70 and laugh my head off the whole damn time. Mwahahahaha. Didn’t your mama ever teach you it’s wrong to make girls cry? Cos then they come back and piss you off twice as much.
