Unbound Spiral: Great Barrier

November 29, 2004 04:54 PM

For anyone wondering where my blogging went I headed down under for Thanksgiving. So I've been offline and staying at one of my favorite places. It's changed a little since the last time our family was there six years ago. There is more solar power on every bach (New Zealand for Vacation Home), and there are a few more baches on the beach. Great Barrier Island lies just off the cost of Auckland a quick flight or a four hour car ferry ride. It's a gorgeous place with wonderful bays, beautiful beaches, and some great hikes. There is no mains electricity on Great Barrier. While the phones made it over, I put the PC aside and read books instead. Seasonally it's a little early for "full summer" at this time of year, we had great weather although the sea remained a little cool.

As the pictures show. We had the beach and various walks to ourselves.
