Feilding

March 8, 2016

We are becoming used to changing our plans, in fact, it’s getting to the stage that we should not even bother to make plans. We arrived in Feilding Monday afternoon and found Timona Park, a huge complex of large open spaces, rugby fields, soccer/football pitches, athletics tracks, pony club fields and much more all surrounded by a network of roads with large parking areas for self contained motorhomes around the edges with a river on the boundary.

  Parked up in amongst the trees
The plan was to stay the night and then head off Tuesday morning to meet up with Pat & Sue in Alfredton where we would stay for a night or two before heading down toward Masterton for the Wairarapa Harvest Wine Festival this weekend.  Well, you know what is coming don’t you? Yep, plans changed again!  We woke on Tuesday morning to gale force winds rocking us around and on checking with Pat & Sue they too had terrible winds which is not conducive weather for travelling.  

  
So we stay anther night here at Timona Park and…..dare I say it?…..plan to move on tomorrow, but this time to a park just out of Masterton, close to where the Wine festival is being held.  Meanwhile we have a good look around Fielding as its been a very long time since we have been through here and I must say it is a very tidy prosperous looking small town.  

So let’s hope this wind abates and we can get back on track.
