We got there in the end!
Hunterville Post Office.
On Sunday afternoon we went around to a friends home, for a little party to celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary.
Looking back four years ago, we nearly did not make the wedding.
We were driving down to a little place called Hunterville, where we were going to attend the wedding.
It started snowing on the Desert Road and at about 7pm, they had to close the road as it was dangerous driving in conditions like that.
There was only one thing to do, turn around and drive back to Taupo where we stayed the night in a Hotel there.
The next morning, over breakfast, the sun was shinning, so things were looking brighter and we heard on the news at 10.00am that the road had opened again.
We drove down and arrived a little late, but were happy to be able to see our friends
married and have the wedding breakfast. It was a lovely wedding.
We stayed the night at the old Hunterville Post Office, which had been turned into a charming bed & breakfast. There were 10 other couples, good friends, staying there too, so we had a lot of laughs and a great weekend.
