Adam and I have made it to Auckland, New Zealand to visit with our friends Rob & Anna (you remember Anna, she was often in the shop knitting when she lived in Hoboken). Their place will be our home base and we will have a few excursions out to other parts of the North Island of New Zealand to Rotorua, Taupo, and down to Tongariro National Park where we will ski Ruapehu Mountain.
We have gone for a few walks today around Auckland and during the last one wound up in a very nice wine bar called Dida where we had a lovely Pinot Noir while enjoying each others company.
We look forward to dinner tonight at Chez Penney which was a common occurrence when they lived in Hoboken. I am sure we will do some knitting over nice New Zealand wine tonight.
More to come...
