Hello friends and family.
I hope you had an enjoyable break over Easter and have enjoyed it as much as I did. On Sunday we did some beach searches for stranded penguins, visited the Moeraki Boulders and ate chocolate. On Monday we went out fishing and saw beautiful Albatross, Antarctic petrels and Mollymawks.
home jobs. I have apples to process and if I do a pot full each day, I will stay on top of the crop which is wonderful this year. Wednesday was town day and Lucy visited in the afternoon.
On Thursday my beach searches found another Yellow-eyed penguin chick that needs a helping hand. What with all of the coming and going in the hospital, we now have 7 penguins in care.
Chris and Hiltrun came up on Friday afternoon and we hosted Trudy from the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust in Dunedin. She is a scientist wanting to save penguins as we do!
There is a touch of autumn in the air these days and I enjoyed my extra hour of sleep as daylight savings kicked in. For the first time this year, the car park was empty for more than an hour.
Have a great week!
