Got to sleep-in this beautiful morning in Hamilton! At 8:30AM we hit the road to our first stop in Morrinsville to get some pastries at the local bakery. We indulged with some delicious pastries and coffee to start the morning. In this part of the country, there is a large amount of dairy farms, so in Morrinsville, there were 42 cow statues throughout the town. While mingling, we found a farm store to look through to compare the different products sold in New Zealand to the United States’ products. What a great way to start the morning!
