Story time with Sago: I remember doing one of these on Facebook a while back, so this is part two of how exceptionally nice people are in NZ (along with giving context for this pic). So on our roadtrip over Easter we decided to visit Charlie's Rock, which is this really cool waterfall in Kerikeri (or so I've heard). The only problem was that the public walkway was sorta outta commission then due to rain damage. In ambling about trying to find an alternate way in, we unknowingly wandered into private property where this very nice lady was gardening. Instead of reprimanding us, she very amiably struck up a conversation with us. Upon explaining the situation to her, she very generously offered to let us cut through her backyard to get to the falls. I mean, who does that? We're virtual strangers who wandered onto your property on Easter and you were not only cordial, but invited us further in? I know that you'll probably never see this, but even though eventually we couldn't make it all the way there, thank you so much for extending to us that courtesy! Meeting someone like you made our trip all the more wonderful, and though we couldn't see Charlie's Rock that day, we did get to experience the epitome of Kiwi hospitality.
So anyways, the backyard in question turned out to be a very large piece of the forest with giant trees and farm animals grazing there, including an intimidating and obstinate sheep who looked upon us with a murderous gaze, albeit separated from us by a thin wire fence.
Here's a picture from the aforementioned 'backyard' with the brethren of the probably psychopathic sheep.
