Been a while since I properly posted. Today being Waitangi Day I went to the Clive River celebrations and rode in the Waka with Sam and this was such a highlight for me. This was an excellent celebration at Clive for Waitangi Day. Ka Pai! Thankyou for the experience. I didn't count how many people were rowing with me but about sixty I think. Also the Food was excellent and the live performances (singing/dancing, Poi/waiata and everything modern) exhuberent and interesting.
Purchased Barry Crump's 'Hang on a Minute Mate' and also Murray Ball's 'Footrot Flats'. Wore Paua and a Sunhat.
No pun intended with the "spider" or New Zealand Weta! (This Icon is my profile image now with Blog Log (great software!).
