Back to the Big City
04 February 2010 | Auckland, New Zealand
Back in the big city of Auckland! Boy, the hustle & bustle after being out on the boat again is quite the jump back into reality. People everywhere, walking to work, cabbies racing around, joggers on the waterfront, and mothers walking their babies in strollers. I think the hardest to get over is the "suits" that partake in happy hour for most of the middle of the week. The thought of going back to work when we return is one of hesitation, the looming reality of the trip being over and getting back to our land lives. Going home for the holidays was a whirlwind of visits and putting many miles on Allan's car driving all over Northern California. It was a great time, but trying to get your boat fixed via long distance was a challenge. All is well except for the watermaker...which the guy is coming today to check it when it's all hooked up again. We'll keep you all posted. Ok, back to boat work to finish up before this baby leaves for Mexico. Can't wait to do another spring season down there before we work our way back home during the summer.
