Raining in Rotorua!
Hi Pete and Suzanne, well its raining in Rotorua!!!!! Also getting a little chillier, but I can see a great crop of camelias and rhodies on my trees now. Did you manage to see the Flying Doctor service or the school on the air, whilst you were in the Alice! Hope so, but if not you will likely catch them again in the remote places. Hope you like Darwin, I think its great with fab sunsets and some Indonesian type government buildings......and the night markets. Its not that far from Indonesia so don't get into any rusty boats by mistake.......and watch out for them crocs!!!!!!! NEVER smile as a crocodile. Keep the photos coming, I am turning into an armchair traveller courtesy of you two!! Take care Love Kyra

Darwin
Hi Kyra Great to hear from you. No, we didn't go to the School of the Air in Alice as I planned to go in Katherine instead. Unfortunately on arriving in Katherine we found it was closed for tours there due to lack of volunteers so we were very dissapointed. We will endeavour to try some other remote town on our travels to see how it all works. And yes, we are certainly watching out for those crocodiles. They say fresh water crocs on like fish but as far as I am concerned, salties or freshies make no difference, because if I see either when I am in the water I am likely to die of fright!

Glad you are enjoying the Alice, we loved it too when we were there.

Alice
Hi Dawn and Howard Good to hear from you. We are now in Katherine where it is hotter than Alice! The Gorge was fantastic, especially the dip in the water hole! Regards Suzanne and Peter

John Walmsley
Received this from Trinity college Auckland. I was still hoping that I might find something for you. Your request got put aside because our print volume that lists all the CMS personnel was missing. We found it a week or so ago, and I was about to email you. His name is not known as a member of the Church Missionary Society, but I wanted to check. He personnel brought to NZ by the CMS are very clearly listed. I suspect that he was employed locally. If he came via Australia, it would be worth looking at any of the John Walmsley’s listed on convict lists. There is one whose 14 year term expired in 1838, for example. Also follow up on NSW and other state’s bdms, most of which have indexes on line, to see if he was born there or in transit. Looking on Ancestry, it is a common name in the Lancashire area: it may be possible to isolate one who is in the 1841 census but not in the succeeding census’s. Regards Judith Bright Librarian John Kinder Theological Library Private Bag 28907 Remuera, Auckland 1541 You just might run across some convicts over there that fit the description!!!!!!

John Walmsley family tree
Hi David Interesting reading! We will try and search some more but we still we still think that he came from Lancashire and hope to confirm this when we go over next year and I can research the records in Manchester. Glad to hear that the drought has broken in NZ and the grass is probably getting greener! Regards Suzanne and Pete

Hi Robert Yes, having a great time and buying the motorhome from you was a perfect choice as we have no regrets what so ever. In fact, if they were still in production, I am sure we could have sold a few if we were sales staff! Looking forward to receiving some of your Everest photos when you have time.

Lobster
Hi Jacqui, Australia may have some great seafood but unfortunately lobster is still just as expensive as NZ so Pete sadly has not tasted any yet. Way above our budget unless we should win Lotto!
