Hawke's Bay

My great-uncle died last week, so my sister Emily and I drove up with Mum to his funeral in Hawke's Bay yesterday.

We stayed in a motel in Hastings last night, then got up early today and headed to the Hawke's Bay Farmers' Market, which is crazy busy and held in gorgeous grounds. I got a wedge of my faaavourite- cumin cheese.



Cloud factory?


We went to Napier this afternoon and visited Whales Tale Antiques, which I highly recommend for a browse. There's another large antiques store closer to the town centre, but this one was even better. So many nooks and crannies jam packed with beautiful things.


On the way home we stopped for lunch at the Paper Mulberry Cafe. I had the lamb pie which was insanely good.

We had to stop in Waipawa so I could take a picture of this awesome cuckoo clock front on The Clock Shop.

How was your weekend?

A cuckoo clock building? How awesome! I think if I could I'd make my house look like a cuckoo clock, hahaha. Maybe not. Maybe our shed in the back.

Sorry to hear about your loss.
Paper Mulberry is amazing - have tried that very lamb pie and it made me sad this cafe isn't closer to Wellington!

That antiques shop is amazing. A bit too far for me to travel to though, unfortunately!
