Jens and I have just returned from a short break away. We arrived home this morning from our cruise out from Brisbane to the south side of New Zealand and back to Brisbane. What a great two weeks on the Pacific Dawn, seeing Milford Sounds, Dunedin, Wellington, Napier, Auckland, Tauranga and my favourite place of all was Akaroa.
Sandra came down to pick us up this morning, which made it so easy. That way we didn't have to store our car anywhere in Brisbane, It is so green and lush around here, we heard that there was a lot of rain on the Coast and in SW Qld. The yard and house survived ok but we have no internet or phone connection, so I don't know how long that has been out for. I'm doing a quick post via mobile internet so that I can update the blog a little, as I have not replied to a few people who commented on my last post. We also had a few problems with me trying to post while away. I was locked out of the blog somehow??????
I will post photos at a later date as they are all down loaded on a different hard drive. That means that I need my technician aka 'Jens' to sort them all out. We had a fabulous time and met some great people and enjoyed some delicious meals on board. Today has been a jolt into reality, I had to go shopping to stock the fridge mainly for the weekend. and cook dinner tonight, then clean and wash up. Ugh.
....anyway I'm back home now and I will catch up soon.
