The visit was special and very emotional, I know that I probably won't see him again but the time spent reminiscing was one to cherish and never to be forgotten.

Next stop was Wellington and a place called Wadestown. Having made contact with 1 cousin suddenly more came out of the woodwork, a total of 7 to be precise and a meal had been arranged so we could all meet. Several more had other engagements and couldn't make it but wow, that reunion was one I won't forget in a long time. Invites have been issued to all to join us on FS, may well be quite a crowded affair but masses of fun nevertheless.

Off to South Island tomorrow, a very early start as the ferry leaves at 8 am and of course, we have to be there an hour earlier. Roll on our next adventure.
