Weeding out clothes that are worn out or that we can just do without. Placing some items in a box to stay in the campercar as it will be kept for our return, apparently....
Pirate has gone for a short ride to loosen his legs as the bike goes back to Bombay tomorrow. We decided that the new Kamo path would be ideal to avoid traffic, so he is trying out the section from Kensington to Whangarei centre and back.
Unfortunately we've missed my potter friend from Street again...so near, he was only at Matapōuri..never mind, he only lives twenty minutes drive from my brother...which is about 500 miles from our home in Scotland!!
I agree totally with what he said in his last message to us.. Aotearoa..the only place I feel homesick for when I get home.
I am not looking forward to the leaving or the journey.
We are looking forward to meeting Kamo Lady, even if we have missed Amy and Raewyn and my cousin near Taupo Bay.

Starting from Opononi on Saturday, on the way to Dargaville
The last day was very foggy so I followed the main road instead of causing more traffic problems to the race..they turned up Tangowhahine valley and down the Mangakahia to Maungatapere before the finish time being taken at Maunu before finishing at Whangarei.
