Congrats to the team for a successful trip. What proportion of the trip was done under sail? Minerva reef would have been interesting. I am off this morning to visit Duncan. He is OK but very bored. Still waiting for a decision about what to do for him. Hopefully heart surgery. Very cold here. Extremely heavy rain on Queen's birthday has brought down another slip on Wharf Road Motuihe so the wharf is cut off again. Unfortunately just last week we had a delivery of 10 large bales of potting mix which is now on "the block" and unaccessible. We have no potting mix at all at the nursery. Not sure what we are going to do. Enjoy your time in paradise. Best wishes to all. Fiona
