    As you can see we’re on the beach in an Art Deco town called Napier NZ on the east coast of the north island. Bought some white pants from a guy in a clothing store who is from Calgary and had great ribs from a Mexican joint.

    We stayed just outside town on beach all to ourselves and Sue lit up a nice fire. The winds calmed and it was very pleasant.

    Working on getting the Lewistown property closed today or tomorrow.
