Willie's parents run a tree nursery, called Te Kahuri Nurseries. Here's a map showing where in Taranaki I'm talking about...
They often have a few animals on their mini farm, but there were no cows this time. It certainly made it easier to wander around, as I didn't need to worry about securing the gates. Cows make me kinda nervous too - they're often taller than me, and I'm not exactly a country girl... :p
Looking across the paddocks, there are some classic countryside views!

The nursery is a lovely place to wander around, especially in the evening when it's all quiet...

I did find some cows, safely over the fence in the neighbour's paddocks!
|Mooooo to you too!|
