Today I had the inspiration to ask a friend to join me with her dog Bobby and have a picnic. with Poppy and I. We went to a local spot called Nowell’s Lakes which is an environmental re forestation and wildlife area. Many local schools have dedicated areas they look after and Hawera Rotary Club are the main sponsors after Fonterra who donated the land. you need to keep the dogs on a leash but we had long ones and they had a lovely run with lots of new smells for them to explore. We had our lunch under a shady pergola and listened to birdsong 🙂 It was a great way to all get exercise and spending a couple of hours there was just right.
