Last day

This is our last day of holiday; we leave tomorrow morning. :-( [consoles self with thought of seeing cats again] We saw the cygnets again yesterday and already their necks are longer and they’re ducking their heads under to get weeds instead of being provided with them by their parents.

Today we went back to the Aratiatia Dam to see the creation of the rapids from a lookout point further down the river. It's a stunning sight as the dam lets water go every two hours to roar and foam over the rocky river bed below. After that we did a river cruise from the dam to the Huka Falls which was excellent: beautiful and relaxing, and... Florrie the bullfighter was on board again! It turns out she and her companions are staying at The Village too--and in the unit we had last year! She's game for fun and went right up on the bow as we approached the falls. She was delighted to see the rapids afterwards as she didn't know about them, and for us they were well worth watching a third time.

A pretty good last day.
