"Our Wee Farm"
As I mentioned earlier Lloyd was up in the sky this morning. He has a friend who used to be a commercial pilot but is now retired. The wee plane they went up in today belongs to the flying club at Kerikeri and anyone can pay to go up in it. Lloyd actually has his pilots licence ( a restricted PPL - whatever that means!) so he took off, flew as far as our house, then Alan flew it round our house so Lloyd could take pics, then L flew back but didn't land.
I love that he was able to do this and take pics. We've always wanted to see our place from the sky!
I'm so chuffed to bits by how absolutely lovely it looks. ☺
(not biased or anything)
Here's the wee plane he went up in. There is nothing in the world that could get me to go up in something like that!
This is the village nearest to our farm. It looks much bigger than I had imagined. I always think of it as being a tiny wee place. In the background you can see one of the volcanic peaks that surround us.
State Highway 1 - this is the main road north, which makes me giggle - I mean, look how busy it is. Our place is slightly left of centre. It's not the one you can see in the middle of the pic, but the one behind that.
Everything right of the main road, with the exception of the big house and the trees round it and the wee top corner on the right is our farm.
Our house, and the wool shed to the right. If you look closely you can see the donkeys in the top left paddock!
The house, wool shed, garage roof and mum and dad's house ~ The Acorn ~ at the top of the photo. Behind the trees near the Acorn is the river where we take the dogs swimming.
The garden part. You can see the veggie garden to the right of the house, and the potatoes! Oh and me standing on the deck waving! Also the citrus orchard right in the middle of the photo. Behind the wool shed is the apple/peach and plum orchard, with The Pip - my wee sewing shed. ♥♥
