I have just had the most wonderful weekend away. Another top-me-up.
It was a friend’s 40th birthday and she invited 3 of us to celebrate with her in style. We headed into the hills, and not just any hills, those with hot springs…mmmmmm
We went up the mighty Mohaka river, camped Friday night by the road end, where there are some hot pools so we had a lovely soak in the dark and again first thing in the morning. Such a luxury. The walk wasn’t too hard just 3 hours.
Walking with women friends is so great, so much to talk about! Non stop, stimulating, “real” conversation- for me that is food for the soul!
Mixed with the beautiful weather, a good leg stretch, great food for the body and the thermal dips it was a near perfect weekend….
We all marveled at the ease with which we can get away (thanks to the marvellous menfolk at home), the freedom to get in the car and head away. We all felt so grateful that such beauty is just on our doorstep, that the hot pools are free, accessible to all. That we had such yummy food…
