Now even with kids ( and sometimes dogs in tow) we like to think of ourselves as "traveling adventurers" or "adventurous travelers" - and by that I mean that amongst other things we try to have adventures while we travel to our destination and not just at the destination - to make the trip part of the holiday. So often we do not stop at the regular big "One stop" type set - ups (although we do have our favorites in that area too), we search out something new. We also often stay over at halfway through the journey - this also makes for happy kidlets. On our way to the North Coast in December we stumbled onto an absolute gem - YellowWood Cafe. Not only does it offer tasty food, it also has an animal farm and several play areas for kids. It is housed in a historic farm house and it truly spoke to me of age old beauty. So if you pass Howick, go through the town and you will find pointers to this great little spot.
