Can't believe we haven't posted since March. What sort of marketing employees are we? Anyway ......... we got back to Rotorua on October 10 after more than three months away in England, Ireland and Spain.
To say Mokoia Downs was wild and overgrown would not do justice to the scenes of windswept desolation and carnage that greeted us as we meandered down our driveway that first afternoon back (apparently it had been the wettest Spetember on record!).
On the positive side, also awaiting us on our return was one letter advising us that we'd won our 5th successive Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence award, and, even better, a second letter advising us that we'd finally made the Lonely Planet and are listed in the 2016-'17 edition (we'd apparently had an anonymous visit in early 2016).
And then the great clear up began .........! Next post will be some photos of Mokoia Downs in springtime.
