I don’t know why but I love a bit of Boules. I think we used to play it a lot when I was little and we went to the beach. So i’ve been keen to get a game in at some point this holiday! Since we’d acquired a new member of Team Taumaranui today, Sarah, a local living American girl ( I think she was a bit keen on Josh ) we had enough people for a game of Rocks in the hot sun :) … And a bit more red wine.
We actually arrived at our destination today at 11.30 in the morning! Josh was keen to be the first group to get here so he could bags his preferred bunking position in the hut, me and Nicky preferred the look of the nicely tiered campsite. Anyhow we had a lot of time to kill, we saw some other happy campers playing with a boules set, so in a fit of jealousy we decided to make our own :) Seems they call the game petanque over here, we named our home made version School of Rock, as we had to teach the boys how to play and other obvious reasons.
