After going to sleep to the noise of rain and wind, it was with some trepidation we pulled back the curtains this morning, although the storm hadn't kept us awake. But apart from a few bits of wind blown debris all was quiet on the weather front and the sun was shining in a clear blue sky. So sunscreen was the order of the day and we left Gisborne in blazing sunshine.....but it didn't last long. Soon we were off the coastal ...

... a broken wrist. He probably would still have done a better job at catching fish than either Kim or me as our haul came to an impressive zero fish. This despite the sonar on the boat showing more fish swimming about than in the average tank in a seafood restaurant. Thankfully we weren't being relied on to catch dinner. The evening was capped off by the quite amazing 1980s film Teen Wolf Too. Cheers Wal and Caroline, you blew my cinematic mind! February 28th - After a delicious ...

We didn't know what to expect, none of us had been on a Luge before but as soon as ...

We were up reasonably early this morning, but were still served breakfast and drinks in bed by Frank. We will really find it difficult having to sort out our own breakfasts from now on. We packed everything up and decided to disappear quickly before Oliver and Liam really realised we were going.......not really sure that they would be too bothered as they were too excited to have their mum and dad at the Bach for the weekend. It was sad to say goodbye to Frank and ...

... it seemed to go down well, and some more went in the lunch for Terry the next day - the last bit would be perfect for me to have for lunch, ideal! That was about it for the evening I think, after a busy day it was some more tv and back to doing nothing again, well other than trying to figure out if there was anything we could do for New Years Eve, the next day. Tuesday and today was New Years Eve, we hadn't really managed to figure out a plan of anything to do. There was an option to ...
