Great news! Twin Waters Lodge had been awarded Qualmark Enviro Silver status in recognition of our attempts to run a sustainable business with a light footprint on the land. These awards are hard-won – you have to be recommended by an assessor to even apply for an enviro rating.
Today it is raining – quite heavily. Not good for tourists but very necessary as the ground had got very dried out, and stress on our plants has been compounded by high seas at the beginning of the month that dumped salt in the soil. The rain is washing away the salt, washing the dust off the plants and generally freshening ands greening everything. This will make for beautiful scenery when the rain goes away.
The scalloping season finishes tomorrow, so our seaward attention will turn to fishing. The brim (a type of snapper) and kahawai (a marine trout-like fish) are beckoning.
