Hi everyone! We're back aboard after flying almost 10000 mi from Florida to Keri Keri, New Zealand, where our friends Rich & Jan (sv Slip Away) picked us up from the airport for the ride to Opua. The projects have already begun and we're glad to be back. To all our family and friends back in Florida, our heartfelt thanks for making our visit such a memorable one! We've pretty much unpacked and the suitcases are (temporarily) in the storage area. Our house batteries are kaput, so we're more or less camping aboard until new batts arrive next week. We've seen lots of our friends here, and the weather has been beautiful. Folks are already planning next season's cruising, and many road trips around north and south island NZ are happening.
