Had a day on the Cormandel peninsula with the legend Doug "Kiwi" Dundee. Just wonderful. Looks like a primordial version of northern California. The weather has been perfect for touring and the air is so fresh. Just loving it.
Meanwhile I had asked Amy about the earthquake in New Zealand and if she were near the site of it and she said:
Yeah far enough away so that we never felt it, though we did see a tiny 30 cm tsunami raise the water level in the bay. Thing is there were about 30 aftershocks yesterday and we never felt those either.
That's the news from this little town of 400 permanent residents.
