Yesterday was a beautiful day. The girls, Rere, Maka and Sonya, came and picked me up and we went on a day trip up the Whanganui River. It was the most perfect day they had a picnic packed, Jocie the dog, and a full tank of gas. It's funny cause it felt like I was in the car with Tina, Davina and Ushula all of who are beautiful girls from my past!
I had never been up the river and have been looking forward to doing this for ages. It was a great day we stopped at every good look out and took many photos. I finally saw where the Flying Fox was, I can't wait to go and stay there it looks wicked! We called into the church at Jerusalem where Mother Aubert had done so much of her good work and James K Baxter had lived. It was an amazing place and I am looking forward to spending more time there. Then we hit Pipiriki had a swim as you can see in this little video, meet a few of the locals and found a lovely spot in the sun to have our picnic, we had fantails flying around us and a big black dinosaur roaring, hahahaha.
Being in the car for many hours there was lots of singing and laughing. I learnt a new game 'Sweet and Sour' when you see someone you toot the horn and if they wave they are sweet if they don't they are sour. Most people were sweet, a good laugh! How old are we? hahahaha.
We saw so many animals on the side of the road from baby moa's to a big bull, hahaha.
We drove down the Paraparas on the way home and saw the mighty mountain, the waterfall and the most beautiful sunset over the range. When we got home Shaughan made us dinner and the girls headed off to pick up their next victims for a sleep over at Maka's.
Next time I go up there I will have to get on the jet boat and head up to the Bridge to Nowhere and stay for a few days with canvas and paint for sure! I would also love to go and hang out with some of the rivers locals.
Thanks girls for a perfect adventure up the Whanganui River!
My message for the day was: Your powerful heart centre is God's gift during your Earthly journey - it guides you, manifests for you, and clears you of any wreckage along the way.
