About Me

  • Cyra Lewis
  • Love of my Life is Tony
  • We have four children (all flown the nest)
  • After we sold our Waiuku farm, we used our bare land in Central Hawkes Bay for a base-camp while we toured NZ North Island in our caravan for nearly a year
  • Early 2016 saw us moving into our dream home in Opunake, Taranaki.

The following is our previous home (and life) that we sold in mid-2015

  • Cyra Lewis
  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Love of my Life is Tony
  • We have four children (all grown up now).
  • Emma, Mark, George & Sam
  • Two fur babies - Freddy (a Jack Russell) & Mojo (a miniature Jack Russell)
  • Two white doves
  • Emma has flown the nest but returns as often as she can.
  • The rest of us live on a life-style farm. Our own little bit of beautiful New Zealand.
  • 19 Highland cattle live on the farm.
  • We have a lovely orchard that gives us all the fruit we need, plus more for friends and the wild birds.
  • The Glenbrook Vintage Railway track runs past our property, giving us a fabulous view of the Steam Engines that do the one-hour tourist trip each Sunday throughout summer.
  • I love steam engines. So nostalgic and majestic.
  • I am a Stitch-aholic.

  1. You live in a very beautiful country. I have been there twice and would love to come back again someday.


    1. Be sure to look me up if you get back to NZ Freda. The farm gate is always open for friends :-)

  2. Buttercup! What a fabulous picture! I'm grinning from ear to ear!
