Having a wonderful time so far. We have been to the far north, spent a day on Tiritiri Matangi, seen Victorian towns, not seen the tops of the volcanoes because they were in the clouds, seen mud pools and thermal springs, had terrific hosts for B&B, seen J's brother (the first time I'd met him), had warm sunny weather, rain, hail, showers...
We have seen new bird species, many different tree ferns, plants familiar from the Scillies except they are natives here. We are trying the excellent wines, the food is good--lots of salads and veggies as well as fish and meat.
