The folks who own Telegraph Hill Villas have a olive store in Hastings. Roasted olives, flavored olives, smashed olive paste, olive oil...if you like olives, it's the place to be. We had a hard time leaving our perch at Villa 1 in Havelock North at Telegraph Hill, but made the trip down the island to Wellington which is one of New Zealand's big cities. A wild and wonderful place with great food, art and good people watching.
Today is tomorrow here (Friday) and my mum-in-law's 90th birthday so the clan is assembling at my sis-in-law's beach cottage in a few hours for the big celebration. Happy Birthday, Mum and Joy to the World, y'all!
