We're staying in a wonderful, comfortable, friendly motor lodge in Rotorua, with a soaking pool and a hot springs pool. We enjoyed trying those out in the afternoon.
But first, we drove back up to Matamata after breakfast, as planned, and had a fabulous time on the LOTR tour. It hardly even sprinkled on us, so much better weather than yesterday.
After the tour, the boys got to see a sheep sheared (the LOTR set is on a huge sheep farm) and got to feed baby lambs. Fun!
