A Review of Theo’s Cottage:

“In the evening of Monday, March 30th, we pulled into Ngā Manu Reserve (aka paradise). We couldn’t quite believe we were staying at the gorgeous Theo’s Cottage. We were instantly off exploring, meeting pukekos, waterfowl, cheery fantails and ancient swamp forest within two or three steps. Jane went to ascend the watchtower and have a wee cry at the serenity. Meanwhile I tried to capture the evening in a time-lapse. Pleasingly, there was a moon angling through the frame. Serenity is however not easy to ‘get’, and many a time-lapse was simply a compromise, as I have a knack for ‘missing the moment’ (due to my being transfixed by amazingness in every direction, followed by becoming indecisive about what to point the camera at).”
