AOTNZ tour Kerikeri & Waiheke

Had a great day yesterday playing tourists. We visited the Waitangi Treaty Grounds & House & soaked up a bit of history. Feeling culturally and historically enlightened we smugly returned to Kerikeri to set up at the fabulous new Centre complex. Chef Terry organised pork chops for dinner and we duly recited our now-semi-automatic repertoire to the assembled citizens who would have numbered about 50 I guess. Most enjoyable evening and back to the cocrete block motel for an early night.

Off at 7.30 after poached eggs on toast and drove through shocking weather to arrive in Auckland about 10.30 - pretty good going apparently. The GPS took us straight to the ferry terminal at Half Moon Bay to check in and there was time for coffee, soup & the Herald before embarking at 12.30. Safely tucked up at Briar Ross's Matiatia Estate with cups of tea & her own lovely olive oil. Looking forward to the gig at Morra Hall in Oneroa.
