Sometimes we do a bit of work around Mokau.
We have been putting in a driveway to one of the local holiday homes.
It has been a breezy day, and rather rough at sea, but an enjoyable job.
It makes a real change to have no traffic to worry about, you don't realize how stressful this can be until suddenly it isn't there.
It is a bit like a temporary ceasefire on a battlefield.
You can chat without the roar of trucks interrupting, you can stand back and admire your work, and best of all, it was only a short walk to the pie shop...
