Where to begin?
Started with a road trip from Auckland to Gore (+/- 1700 km). the trip included a 3 hour ferry trip across the notorious Cook straight which was pretty calm fortunately. Coming into Picton via the Marlborough Sounds was very picturesque and pretty.
Had a great visit with Leanne, Shannon, Luther and Zeke in Gore. This will be the last time we see them until they (apart from her husband Shannon) meet us in the Bahamas!!! The Admiral will certainly miss her grandsons, but so will I mind you, even though we only get to see them every few months due to the distances.
Next stop Timaru for an engagement party!!
