NZ Reaches Level 1

So, we have had no new cases for, I think, 28 days now and there isn’t anyone in NZ who has Covid 19. With no foreign tourists, the campervan people have greatly reduced their prices. So now we decided is a great time to get out on the road.

Level 1 officially starts only at midnight tonight but in our travels on the road we have see a lot of level 1 behaviour.

Ana came for our first night so that was fun for all. Although Ana was a bit reluctant about the walking stuff.

Still it was fun in the van.

Since we took her back home we’ve spent two days in Coromandel and now moved on to Red Beach north of Auckland.

Tomorrow we’ll go further north, maybe Russell or the Kari Kari Peninsula

So the blog will become a bit more intermittent as we exit lockdown and will have reasonable freedom to move around now. I can even play tennis again.

Ana, Vicky and I completed our 100km in 14 days today. Mike took a photo but I don’t have it yet. We know every street in the village by now and I have had enough of Alexandra Redoubt for a while.

I have enjoyed the walks but I feel that I am due a break as I’ve also been doing some pretty heavy bush clearing on the property. Two more trees down today (small trees I hasten to add, I’m not all that good with a chain saw that I want to tackle anything big). Next project is a path down into the gully and I will be doing a bit of hauling soil around unless I can find some local friendly guy with a little machine.

Also no more jigsaw puzzles for a while.

This is the “mostly before” shot. Started on it but a way to go.
