THE rain really did stay away and the sky was a crisp blue at the May Gordonton Country Market. Perhaps it was a tad on the chilly side, but there were hot drinks to sip, doughnuts to nibble and way more as the sunshine streamed through the trees. Number 8 Network had its ace team on the job – Iris Riddell and Ciaran Warner. Annette Taylor lollygagged behind with the camera.
Our friendly busker kept people tapping their toes –
And the gang from St John’s were out in force –
This little girl demonstrates patience while she waits for her donut –
Concentration is everything when preparing fine food –
There was a pukeko pinny as well but these rather caught the eye –
Plenty to choose from –
Ace reporter Iris Riddell was put to work wrangling the Mushroom Kids –
And didn’t she – and they – do well –
Then she was allowed to get some herbs for Taupo garden –
Meanwhile, Ciaran was hard at work getting words for a story – (watch this space for an exclusive Warner piece on the Mushroom Kids!)
Hot chocolate kept this one fueled –
And there was plenty to smile about –
And when we left, the toes were still tapping –
Thanks Gordonton Country Market organisers – it was a pleasant start to the weekend. Looking forward to June!
