Nicky and I went to Christchurch this week to see Bob Dylan.
Yesterday I paddled alone from Port Joly to Port Mouton, around a peninsula which part of a national park. I have paddled this route once before with a couple of friends, it needs treating with respect because
This visit to see Beth, Tom and our grandchildren has been a little different.
Caroline & Steve arrived in NZ late Sunday evening, stayed one night with Nic & Jim, & flew down to Invercargill, where we met them. Tuesday, the plan was to go to Milford, but the road was closed due to snow; the first snow we've had this winter! So we took the post as far as the Hollyford valley, doing the regular stops and short walks along the way.
Ok thought I'd better post something even though you have all congratulated me already! This is the only picture I have. Joe (who was using the ride for training for his Lands end - John O Groats ride in August) took it of me at the finish. Bit of a grimace going on I think I was trying to smile! (There is an great one of me taken by the official photographer but I refuse to pay £10 for a download!)
