A Girl's Road Trip
Yesterday, Rebecca and I went on a road trip to the Hawke's Bay. She had some business to do over there so I went along for the ride (one can do that now). I also had a cock and hen Blue Andalusian that I had sold, so they were going to get delivered to their new home as well. We stopped at an interesting place, called Abbotsford, that served morning/afternoon teas and lunches in Waipawa, as this had been recommended to us.
A Devonshire Tea on the lawn under the sun umbrellas - beautiful food and lovely setting - ideal for a break on a road trip!
We had a late lunch at The Mission Winery, which was very nice and relaxing. This is the view looking toward Napier, and (below) the entrance to the House, Restaurant and Shop.
After lunch we left Napier on the Expressway and turned in to the Silky Oak Chocolate Factory - Easter isn't too far away, and besides we didn't have dessert at The Mission!
This is a beautiful cabinet display in the Museum Shop:
and these are some of the goodies we bought. Mmmmm! roll on Easter, 'cause these are THE BEST marshmallow eggs and chocolate letters in the world!
