We have enjoyed the last few days of our time in New Zealand, trying to appreciate the western comforts & ease of speaking English before we fly to Chile tomorrow! We returned to the North Island & had a few days in Napier where we stayed in a little cabin on a holiday park, which made a nice change from hostels. We had a look around Hawke’s Bay on a wine tasting tour which was great. The tour we booked on had been overbooked so we were put on a nicer one with just one other couple. They knew a lot more about wine than us & maybe thought we were a little strange when Mark & I agreed that one of the wines had the aroma of Baked Beans. Maybe we’ve had a few too many tins recently! We have spent the last few days exploring the Coromandel peninsula which has a beautiful, rugged coastline. Our friend Greg joined us & we did a lovely walk with great views, although a bit more hilly than anticipated. We also went on a little train through the countryside to a lovely viewpoint. Taking advantage of being by the coast, we had some good seafood. We had the best fish & chips we’ve had in a while & I cooked mussels for the first time last night. They were huge & really tasty & we don’t seem to have contracted food poisoning so it’s all good or “ sweet as”, as the Kiwi’s like to say!

Loving the pictures guys! Some excellent facial expressions and poses! I particularly like the trampoline one Mark. When I first viewed it I hadn't scrolled down to see the trampoline and was very impressed with your jumping and 'starfishing', still good though, i'm not dissing it! You both look super well, getting good tans and lovely freckles Jo. I am getting greyer by the day in this tropical weather we are having!! Take care my loverlies xx
