So Thursday continued on, the Wifi is a little erratic but when you get the signal, it is fine.
The blogger and Joseph
After the chores we wandered down to the beach, It was a beautiful day again.
We all have to be careful, not to burn, that poxy winter skin
One thing about the fake tan, there is not quite the same urge to expose one’s skin frantically, in hope of getting some quick colour. One can take one’s time.
One must look good at the wedding don’t you know!
Got ourselves chairs and pozies already and Lying in the sand commenced
Next chore getting into town for lunch
Dan, Helen and kids took off on their trusty steeds
Dale and I caught the Clockwise Bus
Bought a 10 trip pass.
Ah, Traders Jacks
Perfect for lunch.
Very good Bloody Marys there, spicy.
Followed by a taster of Ika Mata and garlic bread
Not quite as good as Dan’s but up there
Then, in no particular order,
Fish and Chips
Smoked Marlin Salad
With a cheeky little Pinot Noir chilled down with ice, to make it go further
Drink as much fluid, but not so much alcohol
This is the "Wine Mantra" for this Vacation
Wonder how long it will last
So back on the bus home
Drop off at the Cooks Oasis
Afternoon Nap, Pool, Dressed ready for cocktails
The Groom to be Tim and his lovely Bride to Be Tina, hosted drinks at our old haunt Aroa, Shipwreck Bar
Tina, second from right, with visitors from New Zealand!
They serve their drinks in Jam Jars here, and some great Music on the Side
This night was Rudy more about him later
Dan and Helen rode off and we found a taxi
Wont be doing many of those
$25 for about 5 kms
Maitais etc all round
Meanwhile Tim had a sad, sad tale to tell
He is now sporting The Rarotonga Tattoo
Incident with a dog and a bus
Luckily it is all superficial but not too pretty
Hopefully this can be covered up with clothes
Lovely time at The Bar
Taxi Driver John brought us home
Dan and Helen cooked a great fish dinner with coconut rice and a spicy salsa
Served on their deck
Home to bed and read
And I woke up this morning, with nothing on my mind.
Here we go onto another beautiful day
The Gods are shining on Tim and Tina
