Family Day

I love having family days here.
There is always something that can be done, even if it is a simple walk in the local gardens, and believe me we have lost many an hour there before!

One activity that we do attend each year is the Gallagher Great Race.
It is a rowing regatta that is completed over 3.85km on the Waikato River.
We only really go to see the main 2 races, the men's and women's final (but then so does everyone really)
Last year the boys in the family were all away at the caravan, as they had left me at home to complete my essay. This year we were all able to go.
Despite the weather, umbrellas definitely neeeded, we all had a great time out.

We love it when we bump into friends

I used to be a cox so raced in many regattas like this! Stressful most of the time when competing but great fun to watch!
