Hello friends and family
Happy New Year
May all go well for you this year. I have just returned from a mini holiday with Maria, Bryan and Daniel. We went to Queenstown before it went manic and the adults went on an e-bike wine trail while Daniel went mountain biking with a guide. It was fabulous and I recommend it to anyone travelling to Queenstown.
We travelled up through the Maniototo and came back down the Waitaki river valley, stopping for dinner at the Moeraki tavern on the way home.
On Thursday morning, Maria and Bryan left early to catch the plane home. Daniel and I were joined by the team plus Mel and Thor to micro-chip another 10 chicks. Lindsey is now fully signed off and Daniel was able to collect a number of fleas to help Sue identify what species they are and then we can refine their control on the penguin chicks.
Cousin Daniel arrived on Friday and it has rained ever since. The New Year has brought us what we needed most – rain!
Have a great week!
