I will now apologies and explain why
I'm sorry I haven't been keeping my travel log up-to-date; the main reason is I have never been any good at keeping a diary; most of them are completed diligently for the first two weeks of the year and then die. This is what's happening here-sorry.
Also in my defense once you get out of the big city's internet cafes are really expensive and the computer are slow and I really don't want to spend most of my time and money sitting at a computer.
So what I'm going to do with this entry is give you all a quick run down of what's been going on, the dates are going to be left out because I have completely lost track of the days let alone the dates! New Zealand has that affect on you.
When they did the almost compulsory trip to the Cape I asked Scott to pick me up some more oranges, as I had eaten all of mine and they were so sweet I needed more. I told him to pick me up about $2 worth. As you can see from the picture that gets you quite a few.
The cleaning was going well, only two hours from 9.30am-11.30am and as the new person I got the toilets and showers. No problem after last Christmas Eve!!.
It was good to get some sort of routine back into my days and Sparta and Jack (the owners) were lovely.
One day the weather was good so Dean, Scott and I took a double Kayak down to the beach, about 5min walk away. We had fun trying to get across the main road.
Once down there Dean and Scott went first, Dean having never kayaked before. It was a fun thing to watch. The best bit was watching the pair of them trying to walk down the very pebbly beach bear foot. Off they went over to one of the small islands; Esther had joined me on the beach to watch the action.
You get very wet, but it is great fun.
We all returned to Centrabays, Scott and Esther when back to their hostel up the road and we agreed to meet later in the pub.
After a shower and food Dean and I headed down to Esther and Scott at the Pipi patch.
Paihia is a very small town, population of only 6000. and that's on a good day!.
It's great as you can't get lost.
There are only three pubs and one pool hall that open late so that's where everyone meets. I will end this entry here and continue with a new one. Keep watching as it gets interesting.
