Rainy Day in Paeroa

It’s been a bit of a “do nothing” day today in Paeroa.  The rain has been coming down in sheets, and the temperature dropped considerably – much too miserable to go out sightseeing, we decided.   So we stayed in camp all day and socialised with the others at morning tea and 4zees.  The rain was pouring off the corner of our awning, and we placed our large pink bucket underneath.  In no time at all it was full and overflowing.  It seemed almost a shame to throw all that lovely fresh water away.

The Paeroa RV Centre has a large social hall where residents meet for Happy Hour, with a cosy fire to keep things nice and warm.  Someone was drying an item or two of clothing on the fire safety rail, I noticed.

There are plenty of seats and tables,  a small pool table, plus a very extensive library.  I took a few books over to swap – and came back with a couple to read, just the thing for a lazy rainy day.

The rain finally eased as the day drew to a close.  Here’s hoping for a better day tomorrow when we travel down to our next stop at Rotorua.  The sun shone gold as it slipped down towards the horizon in the west.
