As part of my recovery process I decided to have a bit of Rest & Recuperation, and what better place than on a boat, one that is alongside and not going anywhere of course. Luckily enough my brother and his wife just happen to be on the South coast, not far from home. This is Kapowai, their home from home.

Kapowai

After the hello’s I checked into my forward cabin and then to the back deck for afternoon G&T, it’s a stunning boat with plenty of room onboard, sleeps 10 and never runs out of ice, although the Gin can sometimes be hard to find. After a long night of catchup and story’s of the crossing from the USA it was bed.

The next day was another late summers day, cool breeze but lots of sun, we decided to take the tender up the river and find a nice pub for lunch.

Tender

The trip up the river was great with some interesting sights.

Some that didn’t make it.

Wreck

Small ferry, that can’t be missed.

Pink Ferry

And a lot of very nice homes.

And finally our destination, we were told this pub had great beer and excellent food, they weren’t wrong.

Jolly Sailor

And even some words of wisdom.

All in all a great couple of days. You can check out my brothers blog here.

Yeah I know, I’m slacking again, I’ve just been so busy, first it was Hank, now he’s done (but broken) I’ve started on the driveway of our house, I promised the wife once Hank was done the drive out front and the patio and summer house out back will be done, so I start these things and then get called away, while I was away this time my wife filled a complete skip with dirt, that is some going, about 4 to 5 tons of the stuff.

Of course I appreciate all this hard work my wife has done but its not all plain sailing for me out there you know, high winds, freezing temperatures, danger around every corner, like just the other day we had to negotiate our way through this lot.
