Where I stayed
The Honey Shed -- the homestead of Beth and Keith

Well, folks, the time has come for me to move on. I am leaving the city of Auckland tomorrow heading to my destination on the Coromandel Peninsula where I will be working with the fine folks at Karuna Falls Cooperative Society. This means a couple of things; first, I will be surrounding myself with more people, and by the sound of it, some younger people. It turns out that there will be a couple from Ohio and a guy from the UK wwoofing at the same place as me for the week. Hopefully we all get along, and maybe I can find some nice travel companions. It also means that this steady access to the Internet may be over. Because of that, I may not be able to update my blog as frequently as I have been. Hopefully you all don't mind too much. I will do my best to let you all know how I am doing when the time is right.

My last night here at Beth and Keith's was fine, more rain, which is expected by now. I was recruited to participate in Beth's film on organic gardening. My role was a blindfolded taster for a test comparing organic, home-grown asparagus, and that bought from the supermarket. It was hardly a scientific test; the asparagus specimens were obviously displayed - they were two different sizes, so I could easily tell which was which. I also introduced myself holding gardening tools in a cheesy, awkward way, which I am sure turned out great.

But I am grateful for the hospitality, good food, and comfortable accommodation I have received here from Keith and Beth. My stay has been helpful and has given me a little direction and some solid ground to make decisions from. So, even though I have complained a bit about their habits and the situation, I must say that it has been worthwhile and I am glad I was here.

I guess that's about all I've got for now. I hope the coming days and weeks treat you well. Be kind to each other, and be kind to yourself. I will talk to you all soon. Wish me luck on a new leg of my journey.
