Linda waves goodbye to Napier

We fly out first thing tomorrow.

We spent the day doing sweets. The local chocolate shop Silky Oaks. (Don't ask me why that name, I don't know.) The cafe was one of the best. The crowds were the worst. There were two cruise ships in port, and I think a record number of people wanted off. All of them were shambling around the main street in front of our place life bucolic half slaughtered sheep. Then, somehow, most of them got to the chocolate shop just before us. They have to post a staff person outside one part of the shop to keep from exceeding fire regulations.

Then the honey place. We did a bit of research and it's ok to bring honey back to Canada. So the website says. The cruise ship people beat us there, and were gone when we got there.

Then a walk on the beach, looking for more interesting driftwood, and found lots. Stay tuned for the well dressed log. I'm thinking about what's the best way to deal with all the driftwood photos.


  1. Safe travels home! It's been such a pleasure following your adventures and seeing your photos. Thanks for sharing the journey with us! And look forward to seeing more photos once you're home and have your feet under you. The puds are going to be soooooo happy to see you!

  2. Goodbye Napier - Hello flying cigar tin - I echo Jan's good wishes and thanks. Cheers, Sean
