Today I walked the beach south of Hamilton’s Gap and Daniel’s mum walked on the north side of Manukau harbour. I saw a small plane fly low and slow down the coast, and our private plane helper out of Ardmore also flew the coast and harbour.

More coast walking tomorrow. Not sure about flights.

We are doing okay, I think. Still in this awful limbo, but coming to terms with it. I think. The walking helps.

Very grateful to Paul & Jen, and Allan & Mary.
