Hello friends and family
Dan and I arrived back from Akaroa to a stormy week. Fortunately, we had indoor jobs to do and creating new tee shirts for the symposium was a combination of learning and creating. By Thursday we had had over 50 mm of rain – about an average years’ worth.
There was surprisingly little damage in the colonies – a few fallen trees, but no slips. Most of the penguins stayed out at sea which was very rough. On Thursday we went to the Tavern for tea and met up with Elaine who had braved the weather and been to Dunedin for a training day.
On Friday, Dan went off with Robbie to get wire netting from the kind people there who have offered us some. Hiltrun came up and we checked out both reserves and the coast in between. Hiltrun has finished the annual report and worked on my presentation for the symposium. Thank you Hiltrun.
Saturday was a fine day at last! Dan and I went to the Hampden house and planted the 5 roses that we had purchased on our way home from Akaroa. Dan is away home today after a week of working and creating on behalf of the penguins. Thank you, Dan.
Have a great week!
