Happy Birthday Roy - Monday 8th February

It's Roy's birthday today so it's a nice relaxed start to the day.  A leisurely breakfast, read the papers and then a short drive to the car ferry to Russell.

It's Moo Moo again!

Russell is just across the bay and was the original capital of New Zealand.  It's all been cleaned up now but apparently it was just like the Wild West in the second half of the 1800's.

We strolled around, window shopped and the stopped for tea and cakes.  Russell is a lovely, clean and neat little place.

Oh No!  Not carrot cake again!!!

Afterwards it was the ferry back across the bay and a short drive to Paihia.

A lazy afternoon was followed by a birthday dinner for Roy at the Seafood Only restaurant.  That brought a lovely relaxing day to a perfect close.
