We stopped at Foxton and went up the windmill - that brought back lots of memories of Holland as a kid, then we had Poffertjes from the dutch cafe. What a treat, the girls loved that.
From there we carried on to Hawera to a Tawhiti museum recommended by a knit friend, it was a great little museum and we would recommend to all.

|A scary Kiwi DIY hedge trimmer - looked lethal!|
|Whalers and Traders|
From there, we went on to New Plymouth via the Surf Highway and went to the gardens to see the Light Festival. It was lovely, especially the waterfall.
One wet day then a few more days in the sun sightseeing.
