    ... park there for free overnight – Jeremy had a drink there – busy night – there were around 6 cars in the car park at one time. He came out to say that from the photographs in the bar it used to be a thriving little town when the mining was there – one picture showed a “department” store with a provisions section that would have rivalled Harrods (well, almost...)

    We had a stroll around the town and inspected ...

    ... van. We have started to get use to the bed in the van. We are using the one over the cabin. Now it may seem small but actually it's quite a little love nest (for sleeping) although those ladders can be a bit of problem.... Today was the first time we had to perform "maintenance " on the van e.g. The pooper scooper - that's when the first soaking happened - nothing to do with the pooper scooper!

    ... after Christmas – in time for us all to get organised for New Year down the coast at a beach called Turakina. When we arrived other friends were already there, Adrian and Margaret (although poor Margaret had had to go to work), and John and Joyce and we set ourselves up in a big circle of buses. Jeremy put out our “wind blocker” sides on the awning of Bertie – something we were grateful for ...

    ... had already travelled 10-15km so doing the mental sums in my head, I though the 8 litres of fuel I got in the petrol container may not be enough (in hindsight we should have travelled back to the station to fill up!) Passing town after town with no petrol station we starting stressing a little and coupled with the fact that the phone line to the Bluebrigde was constantly engaged we could not say we will not be there in time to meet check-in. We then saw a Caltex station ...
