Huia Cafe and Shop---worth the trip.

Today was the last day of my holiday. From tomorrow on, it will be back to the hurly-burly of a large secondary school, working with the students, teachers, families and the wider community to help our students achieve the very best from their school years.
 I decided to head out west and take Perdy to the Kakamatua Inlet for a blast because it may be a while before we are able to enjoy that fabulous place again. I have already described and shown just how wonderful Kakamatua is, (in previous blogs) for doggies and for humans. I decided to end the trip by having lunch (with my sister) at the cafĂ© we had seen at the tiny Huia village, which is just over 3 kilometres further to the west. I am so glad we did.
We were able to select some gluten free options and for me, a smaller version of a couscous salad. We enjoyed our meals and had the feeling that rushing belonged to another world, somewhere back in the city we had escaped from for the day. The coffee was also excellent.
So, if you are looking for a beautiful little hideaway for a few hours, head west like we did. You will not regret it. I love the 'west' and wouldn't mind being called a 'Westie.'
