Queens Birthday 2012

Queen’s birthday is our traditional work weekend when F/friends from around the country come along and help us with some of the big outside jobs.  It is a weekend for work, fun and reconnection with communal work, laughter, music and song including a Sunday night concert.

Here are some photos of the usual woodsplitting, more of which was done at Waitangi day this year .  After the storm damage there was much to do, plus some photos of creating firewood from the slash left after pines were removed.
