When the going gets tough, the tough get baking! Some bright spark in the capital (I don't know who), had the idea of a city wide bake-a-thon.
The goodies will be driven down to the earthquake zone on Monday to feed those in the tent cities, the Search and Rescue volunteers and civil defence. It has really captured everyone's imagination. Tomorrow for two hours in city square, right before everyone starts work, "they" (whoever they are), will load a truck of cakes, muffins, slices and scones, and sail to Picton (free, courtesy of our ferry company) then take the drive south.
My muffins are in the oven, and I am anticipating the 6.30am train tomorrow to smell like a Boulangerie! Only in New Zealand...
Watch out for some photos tomorrow.
