It's a LONG way from Home! edit... it took roughly 4 hours to get here from our home.

Today we are heading back to the Bay of Islands, Paihia to be exact.... I saw lots of really neat shops that I want to investigate further! AND Lacy and Tim have not been there yet either...

Also, hoping to take a ferry over to Russell... depends on the cost! If it's a bit too high priced we will just tiki tour around the area.

It's supposed to be a really nice day weather wise today too.. so here's hoping it is.

ONWARD... So we checked out Kerikeri, then popped over to Paihia again.. did the shops, lay on the beach front, had lunch... opted not to go over on the Ferry to Russell today (weather was a bit 'iffy')... might go on the way home tomorrow.

Lacy and Tim are having a few 'settling' in rough patches... just getting used to being together 24/7... it's a big adjustment for both of them I think. But I'm sure they will sort it out. Well I hope so! It is a gorgeous home they have here, and Tim's parents are very supportive.

We will start heading home tomorrow morning, stopping at a few more places of interest on our way...

Lacy dyed her hair last night... reddish Burgundy... I dyed mine tonight... quite a dark chocolate brown! Never been this dark before.. it's WAY darker than the last time I did it! Hmmmm... feels weird being dark!

So, another day down in our mini break.. and only tomorrow to go. *sigh*....

End of Day: looking forward to a nice evening with Lacy, Tim and Stew... nite nite.
