its been great...unless you are a dehydrated, hungry sheep in a dried up paddock, or a half starving dairy cow, or the farmers who are trying to scratch out a living [in inappropriate environments i might add] you are probably loving th ehot dry non-windy NZ summer. swimming is so much more delicious when the sea is warm. the body surfing has been great! my poor wife has seen my manic face bearing down on her from the top of a Hahei wave many a time this summer, and caught me trying to sneak up from beneath her in the Whangamata estuary as the tide rips out. All great fun, although hot sleepless nights, millions of flies [i blame our new chooks for smelling irresistable] and a brutal, burning sun are the down side.
what do you former Room5ians think?
And are you out there Gwe Le?
but who dares sit in a sweltering February classroom this month???
