Thanks to my sister Herani, her partner Alkana and their family for taking care of our tired mind and bodies. While we were resting we were very lucky to go to the movie set of the Hobbit in Matamata. All the Foote’s have read all the books and have seen the movies also previously Chris and I have climbed Mt Ngauruhoe (Mt Doom in the movie). We have all looked forward to taking this tour, and yes we all loved it. The attention to detail that was paid to each hobbit hole, the Green Dragon pub, which we did enjoy a drink in at the end of the tour was very cool. The fake tree above the Baggins hobbit house gets leaves rewired every couple of years to make it look authentic. I loved the array of different flowers outside each hobbit door, the colours were vibrant and it was nice to see the good old fuzzie bumble bee. Played dress ups like hobbit ladies, was all good fun and a very enjoyable day. Think this may have been Bella's best day yet.
