Cement ruins, museums and tearooms

With my lovely daughter staying with us for a few days, it was a good excuse to go for a drive up North for the day. Along the way we stopped at the cement works ruins, Warkworth.

We also visited Warkworth Museum which was a delight and worth every cent.

On the way home we stopped at historic Puhoi for the scrummiest Devonshire tea at Puhoi Cottage Tearooms, reputed to be the oldest running tearooms in NZ to serve Devonshire teas.

Look at that photo for a setting! There's Jess and my partner Mike waiting for our eats :-)

The tearooms had the most adorable kitty and the owner provided the very cruisy live guitar music as entertainment...what a delight this place is and the scones were HUGE!

Tea room kitty :-)

A lovely day in all, although i did hyperventilate having to drive past cemeteries i didn't have time to stop at and wander through!
