Luckily Doug had his camera with him so they are all his photos today.
We had a pleasant drive (about an hour) to Dargaville and had a look at a couple of shops (including the Hospice shop where I purchased the exact comforter that I wanted for my bed) before going to the Blah,Blah,Blah Cafe for a delicious Terakihi (fish) lunch with an iced coffee and orange juice. I was going to have the iced coffee but when it came it was too sweet for me so we swapped.
We than had a look at the shops on the other side of the road before heading to the Dargaville Museum which was our main reason for the trip. A friend had told me about the museum and it was excellent.
