Palmerston North road trip

Some notes from our road trip up to Palmerston North for the night 2 weeks ago so The Mister could speak at a geek club meeting.

  • Nice drive up. Coffee at Brown Sugar in Otaki and got to pat the cat.
  • We cruised a few restaurants finding one to stop at for dinner – as is often the case in small town New Zealand, the vegetarian choice always seems to be ‘ask staff for daily special’ – the fettuccine cabonnara I ended up with was fantastic although I wasn’t too keen on the raw egg yolk on top. Scraped it to the side instead of mixing it in as I guess I was supposed to.
  • Went for a nighttime walk around The Square after dinner and it has certainly been spruced up, quite safe, blue & green lights, bridge, fountains. There were ducks sleeping right there on the grass. We saw one duck warming itself up by standing over an uplight in the grass but then noticed she had quite a crowd of ducklings sitting on it! Smart way to keep everyone warm.
  • We stayed at the Coachman Hotel which was pretty dated and unfortunately had rather a lot of WiFi dramas which I certainly didn’t need given the crazy last 2 weeks I’ve had at work.

Here’s the best of my arty Square shots.
