Today I got my first full working day at WWOOFing. Work while WWOOFing can range greatly depending on where you are – you might be helping with livestock, trimming plants on a winery, or in my case, helping around a home. I arrived here yesterday afternoon after a pleasant ferry ride from Auckland.
Mine’s the poorly parked one. It was a gorgeous day, so I relaxed and read on the top deck for the 45 minute sailing.
As you can tell, it was a pretty quiet ferry. I made it to Waiheke Island without issue and drove about 20 minutes to find my WWOOFing family for the week. After numerous winding roads and a very steep driveway, I found them. Since I arrived in the afternoon, work was pretty minimal the first day – it began in earnest on Friday. Here was my task – weeding this:
It rained during the night, so everything was nice and extra soggy for me too. But, I got to work.
And, after about 5 hours of weeding, I was finished!
Those bricks were hiding amongst the weeds. After a delicious afternoon lunch, I had the afternoon off to explore the island, which I took full advantage of!
