We are still in Blenheim, now housesitting for our friends while they head for the South of the South Island with other friends.
The North Island is having water problems, especally the Waikato/Coromandel and Northland..too much rain and a shortage of drinking water.
Whanganui seems ok and we'll be back there on the 21st....a quarter of the year gone already!
The rain here is just steady and fine, just the thing for the parched earth and the grape harvest. Some have already started harvesting, but most have more growing to do yet.
Rain may have stopped today's club ride, but it wont stop coffee and muffins..we'll still all meet up at the designated cafe in Blenheim, by the Taylor River.
