So, I have made it to New Zealand and I am currently staying in Wellington the Nations capital with friends of friends who are becoming friends. Lynnda and Glen have graciously put me up for a couple of days, which I have turned into already a week that they are happy about. The views from this house a top Doncaster terrace are spectacular!!! Here are some shots to establish their location for you where it is possible to see the tip of the South Island. Tough to watch TV when you can look at Mana Island instead. In the future I hope to send a couple of sunsets. Also, if you want to check it out on satellite follow these instructions.
