The Big T and I escaped the city yesterday to explore the back roads to Raglan. It’s a beautiful, very rural part of the country, but even there we couldn’t escape a traffic jam.

It’s shearing time, and local farmers were moving stock to the shearing shed.

We’d already struggled through an Auckland gridlock to leave the city, but the four-legged traffic was much easier to bear, and way more entertaining.
