Gail and I are sitting at home in Budapest wishing you both a safe passage tomorrow! The leaves here are beginning to yellow. Gail is working at painting a flower design on a new cabinet, and I’m doing, well, nothing than surfing the net! Say hello to the stars in the sky above you for us! We will be returning to Whangarei in January! Maybe another attempt on a passage to French Polynesia if we can ever secure a Visa? Who knows?

Have a good trip, hope you get chance to stop at some of the reef systems eg chesterfield reef. Xx
