Weekend in Paroa

20 November 2019 - 12:46 PM

Last weekend my wife and I went over to Paroa (West coast Sth Island) to attend a reunion of my Kelly side of the family (mothers) of course I took a few photos... and was quite lucky that there was a Rata tree in the motel grounds to attract a Tui (native bird, with cravat :rolleyes: ) or two.
