November 21

hadShad a relaxing, easy day spending most of catching up with Rick, lounging on the deck overlooking the bay...

Went for a drive to check out a golf course, and stopped in the community of Howick to walk along the quaint Main Street filled with shops, cafe's, bars. We did a major grocery shop..Rick is making us dinner tomorrow night. I think he's become quite the cook! You get used to driving on the left side pretty quickly. Ricky navigates with the GPS, and Gary drives. Almost every couple of blocks, there is a roundabout. Definitely helps traffic flow. Lots of ups and downs and turns on the roars, no road ever goes straight. You dare not try to cross the road thinking people will stop for you...pedestrians definitely don't get the right of way.

Had a nice quiet dinner at 'home'. Met out our host, who is a delight. Also a teacher.... She gets off for summer holidays in another week. Plans for tomorrow include going down to the beach, and exploring the Howick market.
