Outside of Govett Quilliam

Karen has two sons who have semi flown the nest (maybe not so financially) so she has more time to spend on her own pursuits. She enjoys visiting the wonderful places Taranaki has to offer and one of the highlights of each year is visiting the various gardens in the Garden Spectacular.
