Apologies for the sudden halt in blogging last week, or blog visiting for that matter.
I decided at fairly short notice that I would join my family for a long weekend at the bach & beach.
Blogging at the beach is not easy.
It requires the wind to be blowing in a certain direction, & some cloud cover always helps. (There was no wind, and no cloud cover. After all, this is Hawkes Bay.) One has to find the 'vodafone' or 'telecom' spot somewhere out along the steep cliff face on a narrow track used mostly by goats and the odd sheep (I had to put that in for my Aussie friends), and it is never in the same place twice. Standing on one leg while not breathing is sometimes effective but not often. Then when those magic bars show up, patience is always a virtue, because they disappear as magically as they appear. and then the whole process must begin over.
Swearing does not help, but does make you feel much better. And it's OK if only the dog was there to hear it. Even if he did look surprised.
So, I think it best if the pre-prepared pictures just tell the story...
...as above, I'm at the bach.
...it's definitely spring in the Bay.
...I found time for a little second-hand treasure hunting.
And, normal coverage will be resumed shortly! Happy Monday.
