Hello friends and family,
I had a wonderful time with the family. Days started with a spa and all services were provided, yummy food, great coffee and wine and superb company. My granddaughter was even happy with her new rock!
I joined the quiz team twice and tried Hello Fresh for the first time. This year we did more eating at home than last year, but the standard was higher. The flights were on time and having my car parked at Christchurch meant better use of my time. Using cruise control certainly makes long trips in the car easier.
On my way home I stopped into Pauline’s for breakfast. Pauline is our veterinarian and provides sound advice on all things penguin. She is a treasure!
Yesterday Hiltrun and I did the rounds. The penguins are beginning to build their nests and the cabbage leaves the team provided are popular.
Some pairs were at home, bonding in the run up to egg laying which could start any time before 10 October, last year it was 11 September.
It is great to see the penguins behaving normally, but of concern that there are still no Spotted Shag nests in all the usual places.
Have a great week!
