Not a Sight You See Everyday
Yesterday on my walk, which I took with my youngest, we came upon this lot. In Ahuriri they have a Viking club. My youngest, Master 8, was very taken, he received a wooden sword on the weekend from a Gypsy Fair we visited. He went home later to make himself a cardboard shield.
It is not very surprising that Napier has a Viking club. As some of the first Vikings who came to New Zealand arrived at the port of Napier and moved inland. Dannevirke is an hour and a half south of Napier. It was where, in 1872, 21 Danish and Norwegian families settled.
