and more...

Wai-iti river runs through the farm. It was our swimming place in the summer. After the winter floods we never knew where our new swimming place would be, but it was basically the same place. Once or twice Dad took us eeling. It was dark, but we used spotlights, and a sheeps head dripping with blood. The head was put in the water and attracted the eels. We got some beauties. Well I am sure I was standing back....they were big.

I love all your pictures. Thank you so much for sending them along on your blog site. I much prefer the image of the mom and baby lamb than the imagined image of the sheep's head dripping with blood while you hunted for eels! Sarah
