Review On My Day Out With Me

Review On My Day Out With Me

Silence of Love Tous les SoleilsToday I took myself out on a date to the movies The Silence of Love (Tous les Soleils) and a snack at Finns in our village – Paekakariki.  Fabulous day out and I had such a good time. The Movie was great – French/Italian language with English subtitles and it made me laugh in several scenes as well as weep in the very last scene.  Thank you Me. While I was snacking on my hot chips with the yummy secret sauce, I got inspiration as to what action I should be taking to help me achieve one of my biggest goals.  So treating oneself to a day out was very advantageous for me.

Let me tell you a little bit about Finns while I am here.

Finns is the hotel situated on the right corner of Paekakariki as you come over the Railway lines from State Highway 1.  I suppose the driving distance from Wellington would be about 35 minutes, and by Train about 45 minutes with the Railway station only a 3 minute walk along the side of the Hotel.  Our train timetable is very frequent with trains going in both directions every half hour on the quarter hour.  For those who want to stay in our seaside village, trains run direct to our famous Westpac Stadium in Wellington for the big shows and games.

Finns itself offers many delights for the local community as well as the ever-flowing tourist community.  I personally like the cinema which seats around 27 people.  Just nice and cosy and a great place to be when it is raining outside.  Movie times vary through the day from 11.30am through to

They also feature a cafe/restaurant/bar which is very popular on the 5 days that it is open every week for the main meals of breakfast, lunch, dinner and all day snacks with internal as well as external seating areas that cater for smokers and non-smokers, children, animals and of course everyone else in between.

There is accommodation offered featuring studio units which include usual tea and coffee making facilities, and microwave; with private bathroom, spa bath, telephone, relaxing lounging area, flat screen TV and a sliding door opening out onto a private patio with views of the village itself.

If you wish, Finns will arrange laundry and dry cleaning services. They have a lift facility, deliver newspapers, store luggage, room service, breakfast in the room, fax and photocopying machines, a very handy ATM cash machine, snack vending machines, and special diet menus upon request, Wi-Fi and free parking.

Paekakariki Beach of which I speak so often is a mere 5 minute walk up the street.
