Now I should really mention here that my Nan is a pretty fit lady with lots of go, true she has arthritis and 2 dodgy knees but that does not stop her. She plays bowls a few times a week, golf (without using a golf buggy) a few times a week, swims and boogie boards in the summer and does a lot of walking and treking/tramping (she recently completed a 18 day walk around the bottom of NZ's South Island). She has always been active and does not look like slowing down anytime soon.

And what should we find for dinner that night but a freshly caught Rainbow Trout. Mmmmm. Sorry no pictures it didn't last long enough.
The weather packed it in and was cold and wet for the rest of the week so I am really glad we got one perfect day together.
