Two shots from yesterday.

Change the chairs to blue and this could be any of my Greek pictures.

I really didn’t want to undo all the hard work nurse Mary Treen had put in over the last week making it now almost, almost healed. The skin still looks kinda raw, so I didn’t want to put it under any strain.

A very short drive over to the west coast and the Copthorne hotel isn’t bad, but we just paid 10 NZ dollars for the wi-fi. Allegra House it was free. We must stop comparing we only just got here but that place is going to take some beating. So we are in Hokianga, where the Maori occupation can be traced back to the mid 14th century. Across the bay are sand dunes which you can go sand boarding on, a very photogenic place and the fisherman were pretty active as you can see below.The first European settler in the Omapere area was John Martin, First mate on the Brigantine “Governor Macquarie” which arrived in the harbour in 1827.

Mary has some great shots of flowers again but has gone off with her camera to the woods! So I will leave you with these shots and again thanks to all those who are following. Great to hear RFP all the way out here this morning. Sounding really good. Tomorrow off to see Martin and Sylvia, now hasn’t that come round quickly! If there is a news blackout blame the LWT brandy specials. Take care M & M

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.
