Woke up with screaming upper arm/pec muscles. I asked Bill if he had the same problem, but he said no. Then I realized my problem was directly related to yesterday's terrifying jet boat ride. Must have been hanging on (for dear life) much more than I realized.

After a quick breakfast of various odds and ends, we checked out of the …

Work takes priority over Neville

... earlier than anticipated because I'd wanted to get a decent nights sleep before having to wake up on time this time. I hopped in a taxi and came home. I woke up every hour on the hour, I wasn't sure whether I was worried that I wouldn't wake up in time or whether I was excited to be going to work. Who knows? I eventually got up 10 minutes before my alarm was due and got ready. I left and got the bus in and fortunately made it in perfect timing. I walked onto poolside ...

Another long assssss day

... look at me like that - he reckoned that was the "look I was going for" well what a load of twoddle.

Although I vowed never to do an early one after ...

... with 15-20kg above my head whilst sticking my backside out. If practicing that for 45 minutes wasn't enough we had a heart racing workout of the day to complete.

The government was prepared to move St George’s Day to 25 April and declare that day to be a government holiday. But this didn't happen. In 1920 the government responded to Returned Services’ Association (RSA) lobbying for 25 April to be declared a holiday; the first was marked in 1921.

    Very picturesque location with gorgeous lake views. Room was large and had all the necessities required. Very friendly hosts. Not much privacy, with shared patio area, but otherwise was in a good location and within walking distance of downtown Wanaka.
