Ute Park

Where did the last few sentences of last night's post go?   I thought it was funny that I nearly forgot to add a short explanation of the meaning of the word and then Blogger chose to forget to publish them. 

I didn't consult my Maori language guru.  The Maori Dictionary online says it is a derivation of paparakaute which means public house/hotel.  That makes sense, more sense for an accommodation park than a park for light pick up trucks which is our more common usage of the word in English.

  2. And I thought you were just keeping us in suspense.
