    Default Having a break!

    Not many threads on this ex-pat subject page, so thought I might add a couple of words!!!
    Off up north to the Bay of Islands tomorrow, just for a short break away from home. Hope to be able to get some photies! will try and add them to this site. (Thats if I can manage to do it of course!!)

    Will try! I'm just getting used to using my new 'Notebook' . Windows 7 seems to make it easier to download pics but I'm not certain of my ability to add more than one!!! but here goes!- The area is the 'Bay of Islands' Northland coast, and places include Russell, (original early capitol of NZ), Pahia, Waitangi (where the Treaty was signed) and Huruka Falls.
