2019: Last Look Back

The road taken...

Wharariki Beach in Golden Bay
(and the spring lambs on the walk to it)



NZ rainbows

This enormous rimu tree on the Kaituna walk

Gurnard, any way it's prepared

Golden Bay's Puramahoi Fields organic produce stand

Every NZ road that looked like this

The Oparara caves and arch

The Kohaihai DOC campsite
and walking the Heaphy Track


Paparoa National Park
and the Pancake Rocks




Hokitika



Kaiteriteri


NZ springtime in October


Moeraki...and Fleur's, forever Fleur's




Raglan



Last (though truly first), our abiding NZ friends...

 Hannah and Logan,
who drove five hours round-trip to say goodbye

Selwyn and Raewyn, who welcomed us in Auckland with tea 
and keep the Rover safe


Wall at Auckland Airport

And on the Chicago end, beautiful food prepared by dear friend Rob, ready for two hungry souls. We are incredibly lucky.
