The stage was transformed and twilight quickly became night as Barrie Gibb created a storm - overall, it was quite an emotional concert - Barrie spoke about his childhood & his 3 brothers (all now passed away); his son and niece ( Maurice's daughter) both played and there was a very spooky song where they projected Robin and his voice, but it was a great show, wonderful songs and a superb atmosphere
We travelled to Wellington today and Ivan selected a town for us to have a leg stretch and change drivers but I continued driving for a bit longer and low and behold, the ideal spot to have a drink and change over, turned out to be ........the TUI brewery!! We sat in the garden and listened to a live duo, whilst enjoying a small beer. Our second stop was at a wildlife reserve were we saw live Kiwi as well as several other endangered birds and had a lovely "bush walk" through the trees.
The final part of the drive to Wellington was through some dramatic scenery and hills; we found our apartment easily, which has a nice balcony (but not a great view) and have cooked dinner for the first time in 4 weeks!! Not many places on our next leg have " full" cooking facilities.
Exploring Wellington tomorrow...
