One Ring To Rule Them All

Hello dear readers, my name is Connor. You may remember me from previous blog posts such as Monterey Bay Aquarium, Yosemite, and Kentucky. For this special edition blog post, Audry has kindly allowed me a guest write and share with you yet another adventure we've had together. As you know, Audry has been in New Zealand going on 9.5 weeks. What you didn't know is that I joined her out there for a short time (4 days). This was my first time outside of the States, so I had no idea what I was doing. I packed few clothes and checked in a big empty bag so I could bring back all the yarn Audry bought out there.

Our first destination was Paeroa, known for its naturally fizzy water which inspired a local favorite drink called Lemon and Paeroa, or L&P. Tagline: "World famous in New Zealand." I highly recommend it if you're ever in the area.

From there we took a beautiful drive through the countryside to Mt. Maunganui, where she'd spent time as a child at her grandparents' timeshare. The ocean is very beautiful, but still cold. I decided it was a "looking ocean" after all.

Now I hear you asking, "So why, Connor? Why fly all the way to New Zealand just for 4 days?" Indeed it was not just to look at a beautiful country, nor just to transport yarn back to the States. There at Mt. Maungani I proposed to Audry. Several times. She said yes each time. 
I knelt here in this bit of sand as she sat beneath the bolder.

The rest of that short trip was pretty great too, but I'll leave it to Audry to tell the rest.
