We have had a good couple of days seeing the area again. Friday was the first nice day of the school holidays so I took the kids to staglands, wildlife centre up in the Akatarawa hills between upper hutt and Kapiti Coast. Today Sunday although the weather was overcast we took a ride up to the Kapiti coast - above is a view looking up the coast to Paraparaumu (the jutty out bit) from the Paekakariki Hill road (just don't ask me to pronounce them!). to the left off camera is Kapiti Island - Possum free paradise! The beach at Raumati was great, loads of shells and drift wood and what look like giant Mesembryanthemum (Livingstone daisy). As usual India got wet!
From there we went to Lindale centre - great farm place - saved for another time. We had lunch out and tried the very scrummy Kapiti Ice creams and have purchased some Kapiti Cheese to try!
