We've had a busy week again, lots getting done to have us leave NZ soon! Provisions are mostly stocked......... scrub bottom and diesel are all that are left - we are doing the odd jobs while we wait for Graeme. Still have some stowing to do, but that will come. We have had the boat plugged into the dock (borrowed a trasformer from Meridian) for the last 24 hrs. so we could get a real good charge and eaualize the batteries. It has been great ! I have hot water from the tap
( that is a treat , has been a long time to have that, we normally boil the water in the kettle) so lots of showers on board today - and everyone has had their fill of the computer. the kids were allowed to play on line for over an hour each!! ( more like 2) - we give the tranformer back later today, but we have used the power well! for info- its 220v here and we are 110v that's why we need the transformer
We are getting anxious to leave, I miss being anchored out - and at the same time will miss all our wonderful friends who are continuing on to Fiji, ect.! we have a great bunch of cruisers out here.
Kyle and I went with our neighbors on Hanna , to the beach at 6:30am, yes that's correct 6:30 am- its cold at that time and dark , anyway I went swimming in the ocean and Kyle did some surfing! the water is warmer than the air and it was beautiful , what a way to start the day.
Me ,my kids and the Malachi girsl went for a hike to find a cave with glowworms, found the cave and only 4 glow worms , but lots of wetas ( these are very big!! huge bugs) and we girls ran out of the cave. Kyle thinks we are a bunch of " Wooses" ya well, blah to you Kyle -haha
