When we arrived in New Zealand just before Christmas, we spent a week in Raglan. We’re back here this week. I’ve been in New Zealand all along, enjoying a glorious summer, as those of you who follow this blog know. Jim came back a couple of weeks ago and we have these few days in paradise before going back to the tropical heat of Malaysia at the end of the week. The summer weather is hanging in. Although the mornings and evenings are cooler, the days are beautiful and the surf is inviting. Right now the clouds over the harbour are pink with the light from the setting sun and soon we’ll have a glass of wine on the deck. How will we tear ourselves away?
