November 9, 2023 Who Let the Cows Out? (Day 43)

Who Let the Cows Out?… Moo…Moo,Moo..Moo,Moo! Hahaha, that’s funny! We came back from our adventure today to see lots of cows in the field behind us! We were wondering yesterday who mows the field, now we know! There is a dairy across the road and they own the paddock behind us. They move the cows from paddock to paddock to rotate the grazing so as to not overgraze any area.

It looked like Switzerland at the seaside! No cow bells tho, too bad, it would really add to the ambiance!

As to our adventure…we headed back to Tauranga for an appointment. When we were there 2 days ago, on Tues, Nov. 7, we passed by a shop and stopped in to enquire about what I have wanted for quite awhile. I wanted a wedding ring tattoo on my ring finger. I don’t like to wear a ring because it’s uncomfortable to me, so I thought a tattoo would substitute. The tattoo artists actually convinced me it’s not the best place to do a tattoo, too much wear and tear causes fading and blurring. We said thanks, took a card and went on our way. We thought about it and Robert googled some designs and found one we both liked and we made another enquiry to them and ended up making an appointment!

When we saw the sign, we knew we had to go in, even if just out of curiosity!

We met Buster himself! Everyone was so relaxed and straightforward, actually dissuading me from a finger tattoo!

We got there in the morning and Robert elected to go first!

Ready for the art!

We are so happy with our choice!

The koru “is a spiral shape based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond.[2] It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattooing, where it symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace.[3] Its shape “conveys the idea of perpetual movement,” while the inner coil “suggests returning to the point of origin”… from Wikipedia.

We concluded our evening with grilled lamb burgers spiced with kawakawa herbs and another beautiful sunset!
