Helen and Randall on the road

A bit about our adventures 2011-2012

Sunday 16th October: Hawkes Bay

For my birthday Randall treated me to breakfast (well, breakfast and second breakfast if I’m honest) at the lovely Hawkes Bay Farmers Market:

Then we hiked up to the summit of Te Mata Peak for glorious views:

but not before going a not entirely intentional ‘scenic route’ that took in some redwoods:

Then after a bit of a spruce up it was off to the Elephant Hill winery again for dinner:

Beautiful food (so much so that we mostly forgot to photograph it!): Scallops, Duck, Steak, Papaya Alaska and super-lemony lemony shortcake.

We were the only people in the restaurant after about 8.30 as the All Blacks were playing the Aussies in the semi-final (they won!) which was rather nice actually as the staff were fantastic (and getting occasional updates in the kitchen!).
