... us about Oscar's new school. What a surprise and how great to be able to communicate over so many miles. The wonders of modern technology!
The sat nav in the car has the additional feature of Mr Kruse who we have nicknamed Tom. He gives us interesting facts about the countryside we are passing through, birds, Maori legends etc etc. At least it takes our mind off Mrs Consused the sat nave lady. Every time we go round a hairpin bend she thinks we have taken ...

By this time we were starving so off to town for a celebratory meal. It was john and Janice's 44 wedding anniversary on 2/1 Chris and George's 38th on 7/1 and of course the birthday boys 63rd today. We went to speights pub and ordered our meal with a nice ...

Christmas at Mt. Cook

... out on the third day. This led to an epic (feeling anyway) day of 21km in 30 C heat. We both jumped in the river when we got back to the car.

After taking a few days to recoup, we headed up to Mt. Cook, where the weather looked to be every bit as good as the previous few had been. Our first destination was Ball Shelter hut, up the Tasman Valley. The hike itself is only 9km, most of which is on an old road, so for the most part ...
