It's been so great getting to hang out with Widge all weekend (and show her the reality of our Sunday morning Zoo). I dropped her at the airport an hour ago and right now she is winging her way South, back to her family and Earthquake Country. Sigh. Gee it was cool having her. (And oops she nearly missed her flight. We were shopping...)
There was talk of a roadtrip to Christchurch in summer. We'll bring our tent.
We could stop off on the way along SH1... Taupo? Wellington? Picton? Any takers?? (You'll need to be prepared for a bunch of crazies though.)
