This was one of the prettiest stalls
Lovely macadamia nuts - which we never buy as our neighbour has trees and we can help ourselves if want to.They're rather labour intensive wee nuts!
We did buy some lovely bread from here, though and had it for dinner with some of the goats cheese we bought.
And we bought some of this hot smoked salmon as well and it was possibly the nicest salmon I've ever had.
I thought this stall looked so pretty - not sure if the lady liked getting her photo taken!
And these roses were just stunning.There were some lilac roses - I've never seen them before and thought they were beautiful.
And a jazz band.
In all honesty it's probably just as well we live so far away from it as we would end up going every Saturday and spending far too much money! But I am a little jealous of the folk down there having it right on their doorstep, it's a totally lovely place to spend some time.
Oh and the reason we were down in Auckland again so soon after the last trip? Well, Lloyd had another course to go on and I was picking up my new wetsuit. Lloyds course was ok, but my wetsuit is AMAZING! This will mean nothing to non-divers, but I have been diving all year round in a 2mm swimming wetsuit. Most people dive in a 7mm at least. To say I have been getting a little cold is an understatement. But a good wetsuit is very expensive. I am not a "normal" size so to get one that fits properly I need a made to measure one. So really it was out of my price range. However, my lovely dad gave mum an envelope to take over with her...for my birthday... and in that envelope was some money, well quite a lot of money, so thanks to my dad's generosity I was able to get a lovely WARM, new wetsuit and not feel guilty about it! I had it made by Seaquel who are a New Zealand company and make the most amazing wetsuits. They supply the navy - that's how good they are. I have to say a big thank you to them for the brilliant job they've done and the amazingly friendly service. So much so that I've been invited to go on their next big diving trip in June - so I am very excited! Anyway, enough about wetsuits!
I'm off to mow the lawns!
