Anyway, yesterday we, Doug and I, went on a bus trip to Gibbs Farm. It is situated on the Kaipara Harbour, the largest harbour in the Southern Hemisphere. Alan Gibbs bought the farm in 1991 - it is rolling countryside and is now scattered with major art works as well as various animals, zebras and giraffes to name a couple.
The farm is open once a month except January and is well worth a visit. To read about the artworks go here
Anyway here are some of the photos I took.
This white faced heron was alongside the water at our morning tea stop on the way to the farm.
