The treerific thing I did last night.

I went to the Yellow Treehouse! and I'm still grinning from it.
Prepare for photographic essay below.

All that seemed to be holding us to this tree.

The dinner was a lot of amazing little meals by Dawsons Catering, I couldn't quite get through this one.
The view from our table up.

Diners, Jenny Shipley included, I was a little starstruck.

Popping out to the (porta) loos.

The clean up. We were the last ones to leave. Whoops!

My last shot before hopping in the car and heading home. I found it difficult to say goodbye.

Thank you Tracey and all the staff for making out time there so great!

It's like a treehouse for grownups, only thing lacking was a sign that said 'no boys allowed' hahaha!

Amber said...

Aw that's so cool! We tried to book but couldn't. Glad you had a good time :)

Lucky lucky you! We were up that way around Christmas and the kids were so excited when they spotted it from the car - we had to turn around and go back. It wasn't quite finished and we only got to take photos from the gate. What a magical experience.

Kimberlee! It's just north of Auckland, before Warkworth. You can see it from the road but can only go on the property if you are eating there. However some tourist from Argentina came and had a peek while I was there so use you accent and say your only in the country for a day! :) hehe
