Day 90 March 30th 2016

An evening out with my big son to see The Wailers at the
Powerstation in Auckland. All the old classics.  Started slow but the energy came the more they played. Awesome solo of Redemption Song.

Day 88 March 28th 2016

Counting down the days now… Today’s 10km walk/run will be pretty much the last one before Saturday and the 100km.  Maybe a couple of 5s just to keep the legs ticking over, but that is it! It was a beautiful evening and the Waikato river never fails to look stunning.  Love the walkway through the bush,  peaceful with just the call of the cicadas and the birds.

Day 87 March 27th 2016

Easter Sunday. The summer keeps on giving.  No big walking this weekend so time to catch up in the garden. Lots of clearing to do and finally getting round to painting the fence.  Disturbed lots of crickets and Praying Mantis as I cleared the weeds.  They fascinate me with their tiny heads and big eyes and beautiful patterns on their wings and the way they sort of hover with front legs in the air. 
I wonder why some are a sort of browny pink when usually they’re green. Wonder if it’s because they’ve been hidden in the undergrowth or are they a different type altogether?

Day 84 March 24th 2016

An evening jaunt to Auckland to see the ever irreverently funny John Cleese and Eric Idle.  No photos allowed during the performance since cameras in theatres are only slightly less annoying than people who ‘fart in your general direction’. So, apart from a photo of the stage set before they started, this very sneaky photo during the encore, is the only one I have.  Of course, they ended by looking on the bright side of life.
