Day 183 July 1st 2016

Half way through the year. The mid point. And what a stunning morning. It has been raining for days but today dawned with frost on the windscreen and clear crisp air.  The footpath round the lake glistened with ice and the lake itself was as still as can be save for the ducks, and coots which leave their trails as they launch themselves into the water. 

The crescent moon shone brightly in the dark blue morning sky. Difficult to capture it on my phone camera, but this, shot turned out all right. 

Day 161 June 9th 2016

Didn’t sleep well and woke up far earlier than I had intended so went for a walk down to the beach. What a glorious sunrise.


Next stop: Gisborne. Yesterday we drove through beautiful countryside to Gisborne. I really will have to come back and explore this area more. Lytton High School made us extremely welcome at their staff meeting and we had some great discussions after our “eduignite” style presentations.
