Hi All,
BIG Relax on arrival yesterday, cleared Customs and Quarantine no probs, had an awesome dinner at a pub/restuarant in Paihia called 35 South. Ask Allan to shoe=w you his T-shirt....
So far we have done all the Kiwi biggies - Lemon and Paeroa, Hokey Pokey Ice cream, Garlic Mussels, sav blanc, Montieth's Ales (x5 types), Montieth's Ciders (only one type, but lots of 'em), Chocolate fush, and the best burgers in Northland at Honi's in Russel.
Having an awesome, passage still not yet forgotten (Cate says it is a bit like childbirth....).
Tomorrow we head back to Opua and we will drive Al the 3.5 hours to Auckland Airport so he can fly home. The adventure s just beginning.....
Next blog in a couple of days time when we work out what we are doing next,
