The Inner Wheel Club of Opotiki  Celebrate New Zealand Inner Wheel Day
The Inner Wheel Club of Opotiki celebrated New Zealand Inner Wheel Day on 1 September
Cherry was there and Elsa and Gary. The day was blue skied and sunny, amazing to sandwich it between two very wet fronts. Bronwen and Brian, Fiona and Bob then Jean with a friend Anne. Off we set through the green and shadowy obviously loved five acres of native trees and shrubs. The track has been renovated or whatever term is appropriate for such hard work that has been done. Gravel laid with wooden sides over the wet spots, a board walk through high Tree ferns. Most impressive are the steps leading down through the valley and up to a wooden walkway surround encompassing Taketakarau, the ancient Pourere tree that is wound into local history of long ago.

The sun slanting through the leaves made the bush sparkle and the birds were quite vocal in their Spring busy ness. After all it is September 1st. It is the first day of Spring and it is NZ Inner Wheel Day.

We wandered on commenting on the shapes and shadows and growth that caught our eye. Finally into the sunshine up an incline and out to where our cars were parked. Back down to the town to meet up with Ruth and Lois at the Hot Bread shop for a well earned coffee and “goodies” and of course more discussion and exchange of news that is important to us all.

HAPPY INNER WHEEL NZ DAY.———-GREETINGS TO SPRING.
