For the two or three of you that refuse to join facebook:

Nicole and I are fine. We're in Napier (on the North Island) and did not feel the earthquake at all.

Deco Weekend

Napier in the 30s

People kept asking Nico if they could take her photo. It's kind of going to her head.

Nicole prepared the best picnic ever.

But we were hopelessly outdone by the Buchanans.

I'm thinking maybe I should start charging...

Bicycling and becoming Kiwi

It's been a while since I've posted, so I thought I would run through the camera's memory card to see what we've been doing lately.

It looks like we've been cycling a bit; which is good, as we have less than a month to get ready for NZ Tandem Tour II.

This is what I look like eating gelato.

This is what we look like after winning the Rugby World Cup [Attention Americans: In case you were wondering, the Rugby World Cup is given to the best dressed cyclist.]

This is what Nicole looks like in 33 degree heat.

This is where we stopped to stretch our legs (or rather, it's one of about 13 such spots).

This is as far from civilization as I ever want to be when we're out of water.

This is what Nicole looks like in 33 degree heat when the cows won't share their water.

In other news, I'd like to say this is the before photo, but unfortunately it is the (yet to be improved) small upstairs deck.

This is the big deck. Yes, I spent the day washing my deck, and then rubbing oil on my deck. (This is funny only if read with a Kiwi accent...but not to Kiwis, who think it's funny when I say "deck".)
