    and there was me about to make up the spare room for you all ...

    as for the logs ... did you not get Jons "funny" joke? Go and re-read it and I'll bet you still won't get it so I'll give you a clue ... 'it's rude'

    Not to worry ... as it was, we had a blast anyway.

    Jon, I and the kids finally got around to some serious sightseeing and general exploring. Even dusted off Laurens bike seat, and we all went off-roading on the tracks along the Waimak.

    We saw Kiwis, Dolphins, seals, penguins, wallabies, ducks, geese, kunakina pigs .... to name a few!

    Hope everyone else had a fab xmas, and maybe we'll catch some of you in 2009?
