Island of the birds


I spent last night on Stewart Island. I was woken this morning before 6 by kaka calls. The flights over and back were a treat; beautiful weather effects framing the island and calm air to soothe the most nervous flyer. I sat beside the pilot and tried to keep my feet off the dual controls. Successfully. I had dinner at the South Sea Hotel last night and lunch today here in Riverton. Leo's at home with me, sleeping on the couch, his "big boy's bed". We've already fed the hens and walked "through the forest". Riki and his friends are visiting this afternoon for a wander through the same forest and tonight we're having dinner with Jelle and Doetie.
