Happy New Year
Well, since we arrived in NZ this is the hottest it's ever been at this time of year.
To celebrate hogmany everyone went out on their boats to Deep Water Cove. Even though it was scorchingly hot and not windy there was a fair chop and swell so we had to go slowly. It took an hour and a half to get back to Waitangi on the way home!!
There were dives and crays caught, in fact a huge amount of crays!
The evening was spent at Crayfish Cottage as is our tradition, 4 years already.
There were the 6 of us and a few others, Rhona and Marcel, Beena and Brin, Archie and Frank - all friends of Rhona's and lovely folk.this is the new tractor!!
We ate most of the crays, had fireworks and generally just had a lovely time.
This year, if all goes well, we will become NZ citizens. The application is away and they've cashed our cheque!
Here's to 2009!
