So we get to my (almost) last port of call, Lepperton-next to new Plymouth, the main town in Taranaki; home to Shauns mum and dad (Jeff and Barbara). They have a farm with horses, cattle and sheep. We've spent most days either moving stock around, shotting (I am proud to say I can shoot sticks quite well, haven't quite gotten good enough for rabbits yet!) or diving at Bell Block, a suburb down the road with a little reef and wreck on it. Before we left we went out on one of his uncle boat-caught a little shark, which was kind of cool, also cool that we didn't see any in the water-they do get great whites around there!
The views from the house overlooking the paddocks and beyond are spectacular, but don't think I could hack all this work!
