Rā 239, Rāmere 26 o Here-turi-kōkā

Spring is springing at the lake. Ducks have broods of ducklings and the pukeko and pigeons are dancing their mating dances.  Trees are bursting into bud and bright yellow daffodils add splashes of colour all around.  But this afternoon the colours were on our feet as we celebrated our dear friend Jill’s retirement as chaplain at Waikato Dio and wished her well as she sets off on her challenge to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. 

Not sure she’ll be wearing any of these offerings but knowing Jill, whatever she wears will be colourful.

Day 126 May 5th 2016

So I went for a walk around the bays today. Well a bit of the way round and then over the top.  To meet a friend and it turned out to be two friends!  We had a lovely evening catching up and nearly, very nearly getting caught up in the pub quiz!  After the first rainy day in months, Wellington turned on a pretty spectacular sunset.
