After a really long drive we got to Tangowahine Farm. Hugh and Pauline met us and set us up in our own little cottage with a fireplace. It is great! We went on the tractor with Hugh every day to feed the cows. That was really, really fun! The cows really like the hay we bring them. You have to be careful not to touch the electric fence though. It’s really muddy because of all of the rain so I walk around in the mud with boots on. The dogs are Fred and Ruth and they are great! They come to you when you say “here to me” and they go to their houses when you say “in your box”. I wonder if I can get Henry and Millie to do that when we get home.

Hugh showed me how to fish for eels and we caught one! It was really long and slippery and black. We helped with fire wood and that was fun too. I even got to milk a cow for the first time in my life. I love Tangowahine Farm. I miss Hugh and Pauline and the dogs.
