At the end of May, we went to Gloriavale. TVNZ’s Sunday programme had been shooting in Timaru… and on a blue, blue day, we drove north through Geraldine, then Windwhistle (whose name I wanted to use), stopping for a pie at Darfield… and then west, over the Alps, turning right at Jacksons (with no apostrophe)… through Inchbonnie (whose name I also wanted to use), and back inland towards the mountains. And then, suddenly, across Lake Haupiri, there it was – the Gloriavale Christian Community. It’s beautiful there. And it’s not.
