Still at the river with unseasonably low overnight temperatures. We had helicopters and wind machines frost fighting in the vineyards from 1.30 am :o Outside temp dropped to 1.9 deg where we are parked.

However, Marg - AKA "Fire Lady" was on hand bright and early to fight off the spring chill :TU

PS It was only 7.19 am. My camera has not been adjusted for daylight saving :oops:

After ten glorious days at the river we packed up and spent last night on private land next to the NZMCA Park in Eriksen Road Napier, and will be heading through to Taupo this afternoon. Weather permitting we may end up in Rotorua for Friday and Saturday nights, and be home again on Sunday.

Arrived in Taupo this afternoon. Bright sunshine and warm.
Had overnighted at Waiuoru last night, watched snow flurries yesterday afternoon, woke up to -0.25'c this morning.
Going to be here at the NZMCA park all weekend before heading off North again.

The Cliffs Reserve #5114 on the banks of the Ruamahanga river for the last 2 days.
A very pleasant 23°C. Fine with a light breeze.
Tomorrow? Carterton or Masterton perhaps.

Marginal Netspeed 3G and Spark.

I am dropping Marg at the Napier Airport to fly to Christchurch tomorrow and I have decided to have the van hitched up and will continue to Taupo or maybe Rotorua as I have a bit of an RV gathering to attend in Whakatane at Bills POP near the Whakatane Airport over the weekend. Have just given the van a good scrub and hose down ready for the journey.

Spent Wednesday night at The Rotorua NZMCA Park and made it through to Bill's "Comfort Zone" POP about 1.00PM yesterday. There are now nine rigs lined up and about another half a dozen expected before nightfall. A lovely sheltered spot near the airport - But you would not know it as I have yet to hear an aeroplane.

Scuttled off up to Ardmore on Sunday, travelled via Rays Rest, Kawakawa Bay and Clevedon. Had a couple of appointments in the city yesterday and have made it back to 5 Mile Bay at Taupo for tonight and back to Hastings tomorrow.

Looks a bit like a mini Jayco gathering ;) :)

Have a friend who stayed at Taupo 5 mile bay recently, they commented about the number of NZMCA vehicles parked up in a signposted NO PARKING area ????
Perhaps they were in the wrong bay ?
