We moved into Rock ‘n Rata in Clifton near Pohara yesterday. The cottage sits near The Grove scenic reserve. (The link has a walkthrough if you want to make a virtual visit). Representing the amazing environment in watercolour may be a challenge but I hope to try over the next few days.
All restrictions except border controls have been lifted here. After so long being socially distanced, it feels a little strange to be close to people again. We have started to look at options for a return to Ireland now that a few more routes have opened up but will wait a little longer to see if the lifting of restrictions at home goes to plan.
