Some cute wee fellas and their old lady on a family outing on Lake Rotoaira near Turangi Swans taste ok but you need to skin them.

And some Native clematis - one of the
prettiest flowers in our bush.
We were on tour over the weekend and for a variety of reasons ended up staying and having Dinner in Turangi. We dined at Valentinos - an Italian restuarant that was over priced and underwhelming - but BB is spoilt - Zico's in Courtney Place is still number one trattoria in NZ. And its where the interesting people hang out - a lot.

And the Aussie Rock and I stayed at the Anglers Lodge - it was average, the price $115 a nite but adequate.

Immmmm.....Swan eggs, my favourite.

Best omelet ever.

You eat swan in Turangi and you are devouring shit from the ponds beside the tailrace. El Burcio in the town centre during the 70`s/80`s was Italiano at its best.
