    ... the drive on up toward Russell, we had the pleasure of seeing not one but two rainbows, and the second one was a double rainbow. This was the first time I can ever remember seeing a double rainbow. Who knew I’d have to come all the way to New Zealand to do it.

    ... we waited for the cruise to get underway the other guests arrived. 27 elderly folk marched on board and promptly closed all the windows and took over the whole boat. They were a tour group made up of Brits, Yanks and Aussies. The boat moved away the bar opened. Everyone drank lots except me as I was driving.
