A quick catch up before we get back to a decent connection in Rotorua tomorrow.

Sunday was a recovery day after the wedding night, we didn't do too much but did manage to catch up with friends for lunch and dinner. Thanks Liz, Brent and Nichole.

Monday we headed out on the bikes again, this time to the trails in Wainuiomata. I had not ridden these before but we had a blast. The trails almost all single track with a nice gradient to the top then some technical rooty stuff coming down.

We also managed some souvenir shopping before heading out to dinner with Jim. Jim is an American working as a swim coach on the Kapiti Coast. He is also a CrossFitter and he CrossFits his swim team. We met for dinner at Leuven the Belgian Beer Bar in Wellington. Great food, drink and conversation. It was good to hear about the experiences he is having using CrossFit with his team. We hope the rest of the swim meet this week goes well.

This morning we hit the road for Taupo where we are aiming to catch up with friends doing IronMan New Zealand this weekend.

On the way we stopped at the quarantine kennel where Ginger and Kiwi might have to stay in the future. It all looks good and we think that they would be fine there for the 30 days they would have to stay.

We also managed to collect some pumice so those with CrossFit callouses we have something to keep them in check.

Another dinner with friends tonight. Weather is great so we have been making use of the pool at the motel :-)

Sorry to those who are experiencing more of the cold white stuff. Thanks Trish for shovelling out for the girls. More to follow soon.................
