Yes - it is THAT time of the year again - well it will be on Friday 30th. This year marks our 44th wedding anni - who would believe it? I think we must be the only people whose photos are marked PROOF and who never did buy the real ones or actually mount them in the wedding photo album bought for the occasion. And into the sunset (or something) we drove off in our Morris 8 sportscar (get excited but in reality it was a bomb which I have been seen pushing up hills in the South Island and which epitomises the quality of all the cars we have owned and who cares...) We went to Gisborne and stayed in the prison - as guests please. On the way back to Wellington it rained and as our sportscar had a ripped canvas cover we managed to avoid the rain by turning corners. All of our wedding presents were in the back. Those were the days when we were poor students and managed okay. We didn't own a tv for quite a number of years later but we always had, and still have, many many books.
Thanks, though, for all the lovely emails - very much appreciated.
We are off to Doubtless Bay in the far north of NZ - fly into Auckland and turn left. http://www.doubtlessbay.co.nz/index.htm - check it out. Beautiful place to visit.
We will be back next Thursday but of course I shall be answering emails and all of that and posting piccies etc. Our wedding anni dinner is going to be a bit different this year.
