8pm back at beach side camp
Ahhh what a lovely day with only the walking to town with only my new fashionable bum bag slung nonchalantly over my narrowing waistline. Having said that I’ve been indulging in the finest cuisine Paihia has to offer and Katrina and I and wallowing in food heaven after we feared on seafood chowder entrée and I then had a fresh Greek salad with the tenderest of lamb strips, all washed down with a pint of Monteiths golden ale.
Spent most of day blogging, about 5 hours in the internet café, much easier than tablet plus had connected for uploading photos. All very enjoyable reflecting on the past five days experiences and at least I laughed at my own trail notes. Spent a pleasant afternoon meandering around in the sunshine, there was a farmers market where I treated myself to an Avacado smoothie which tasted a lot nicer than it looked (an appearance akin to green slime). We were waiting to see if Brian would turn up and had emailed him to meet us at 6 but he didn’t show nor was he at the camp when we got back here.
We enquired about kayaks but weather is turning tomorrow and will be a 20 knot headwind plus cost of 65 dollars and 100 pick up by Dusty so intending to just get water taxi over with mornings high tide.
Will be offline again for a few days so you will have to be patient my dear reader.
