Hello friends and family
On Sunday, Dan and I headed off to Christchurch where I left him to head home and then I went to the airport to pick up Maria, Bryan and Daniel. They had come down so that Daniel could check out the university for next year. What a lovely visit! We ate wonderful food and caught up on the news.
On Thursday we met 2 new volunteers – Tamsin and Kate. They, like us, are committed to making a difference and we look forward to sharing the journey with them. In the afternoon, Robbie and I went to the Bluffs and planted 100 Cabbage trees. It is a bit of an experiment because we did not put rabbit protectors around them, rather we are relying on the lower rabbit numbers there and long grass to deter them from eating the trees while they are small.
On Friday morning I finally got to walk the coast and was very pleased to see such minor damage after the big weather event. Yesterday Murray and I harvested native seedlings which I brought home and began to put in the pots emptied on Thursday. They are mostly Akeake of both red and green shades.
It was clear and sunny – very nice out of the breeze!
Have a great week
