Here in Katikati, New Zealand, home on “The Ulster Plantation” we are in autumn and although the evening temperate has dropped the days are still like summer. I manage Western Bay Museum and at present our entire country is in lockdown. Fortunately we can exercise within our own social distancing ‘bubble’ and we have the most beautiful picturesque walkways all over our small town. Keep safe in Strokestown💕
