|Bay of Islands, New Zealand|
Upon returning we visited with John and Janette, the owners of our rental. They live above us in the terraced home, and have a fantastic yard and view of the harbor. John treated us to grilled mussels (yes, those giant ones) and rose wine. John and Janette are originally from Liverpool but live here 6 months of the year and Australia 6 months. Sitting on their deck we saw a Kiwi. No, not really. That is a joke. It was a Weka. But Janette said she let’s other visitors believe they are seeing a Kiwi just to make them happy. We, knew the Weka from our trip to Flagstaff Hill.
