Hello friends and family
The miserable weather continued onto Tuesday. I was spending time indoors but everything in the garden was growing – I had to cut the lawns on Tuesday afternoon – this is becoming a habit! The penguins are now very settled. On Tuesday we checked them for ticks and found none. They are focused on incubation and as they are all in nest boxes, the wet weather does no harm.
Wednesday was a hint of summer – glorious. I did spring cleaning with good cheer and in the afternoon, I planted the carrots and beetroot. After the rounds on Thursday, Robbie and I planted another 8 cabbage trees and so slowly but surely, the tree pen here is emptying out. It is still very dry but rain is forecast.
The rain arrived on Friday night and Saturday was glorious. I did the rounds in the morning and went to the working bee at the top tip in the afternoon. The unusual activity of the week was going to Kaik 2 and photographing the Leopard Seal that was beached there. They are now considered residents of New Zealand – they can’t be living off penguins here – there are not enough of them!
Have a great week!
