Away weekend with the girls! We traveled down to Napier yesterday evening, put the tent up and headed out for a delicious indian meal. A lazy start this morning followed by a stroll along the beach. The debris left by Cyclone Debbie is a treasure trove of driftwood, pumice and random household detritus.  Amongst the ocean worn wood, bark and pebbles we found tyres, pallets and the prize of the day – a vacuum cleaner nozzle that matched Renee’s broken one!! 

But the main event of the day was our reason for being here; the Dixie Chicks at Mission Estate Wineries.  They were brilliant though I wish they had played for longer and disappointed there was no encore!
