Further on from my day out with B last week, this is where we were. Waimamaku is south of the Hokianga Harbour and is a very small settlement.
Because this is about 90 minutes away from where we live B and his colleagues are suppose to drive there only up to 3 times a week to fix peoples phone lines and internet faults etc if there are any, luckily they get paid for their travel.
While he was puttering around last week I took the liberty of taking a few photos (below) while I was in and out of the work truck during bouts of boredom.
There were about 5 houses up this long country road scattered quite a distance from each other but one of them had a garden that was full of Dahlias.
Can never resist taking photos of old abandoned sheds - not often I see metal ones, usually they are made of wood and falling apart.
Whatever these wildflowers are, they look like they would be good for being dried.
