    ... The views were amazing. Saw the red crater and the emerald lakes. The next part was going down on the slippy slidey ash stuff. I only fell over twice! Saved one by doing a deep squat which I thought broke my legs. So much fun :S We then ended up in the clouds so we powered through. It was a lovely walk but 20 k is a few too many. Lovely meal out when we got ...

    ... see the Huka Falls. The falls were visible for starters from a viewpoint we passed whilst driving through some mountainous roads, and then straightaway after crossing a bridge in Huka Falls car park.

    ... the feeling was a tad nauseating. I scream and yelp and move my arms around and then whoop!!! Up we go as the parachute opens up. The noise stops and all is quiet. The ocean, lake, volcanic mountains take up my view. I grab the handles of the parachute and guide us in a circle...amazing. After 6-8 minutes my legs go up and we both land softly on our bums. We did it - it was great. You could not wipe the smile off my face...Bungy Sucks - Skydiving Rocks!!! ...

    ... the edges, but a great time was had by all.

    Now the children, after their customary bubblebath, are soundly asleep. Elise has descended from our tower and crossed the road to the hot salt water pools in hopes of easing her poor, sore post-race leg muscles. Joey has retreated to his warm and cosy bed, and I will soon go to mine. The wind is still roaring furiously outside on this exposed coast, but will hopefully blow the rain away by morning.
