Today marks our 10th anniversary of living in the town (a relative had moved here a year earlier). We wanted quietness, beautiful surroundings and a better climate than Wellington and we got that.
As the saying goes, you don’t get your cake and eat it though, and there have been a few minuses — from day one we discovered copious ants were a problem and not just for us, within a few months we learned about the big planned Waikanae North subdivision at the corner of our street, and we discovered the downside of a having an awful large property renting business a.k.a. retirement village next to us.
But you cope with the minuses if the pluses well outweigh them, and the photos we’ve put on here should make clear the pluses!
