Heavy Rain brings flood

The big down pour Wednesday 15th July flooded Oratia stream and our lower fields. Big logs, trunks and debri are scattered across the large field and more of our sandy banks have eroded and been lost to mother nature. Simon’s lovely willow seat cut from a dead tree also was a casualty – it was big and heavy and about 2m above the bank, and it is now nowhere to be seen. The last time we had such a big flood was August 2008 the first year we were here.
