We have been so busy lately that it was nice to have a leisurely Saturday.  We took a bike ride along beautiful Mission Bay, ate Mexican food (or so it was called), and visited with the pigeons and seagulls.  Can you see the Sky Tower in the distance??  It was just the break we needed before gearing up for our final assignments.  This coming week we head to Christchurch, and then we spend a week in Tahiti.  The day after we return, our replacements come.  We will spend several days training them, and then we fly home!  Several of you have asked how much longer we will be here, and the answer is less than three weeks!!!!  It is so hard to believe that a year and a half could race by so fast.  We have had an amazing experience and have seen and done things that we never thought would be possible.  The time we are reminded how long we've been gone is when we 'skype' with our family and see our youngest grandson who was just a couple of months old when we left, and is now a darling, active, talkative toddler.  Time to get reacquainted!!

Fun shots and I can hear the ambivalence in your post. Looking forward to going home but sad to leave the land of the long white cloud. It will be grand to get to know your newest grandson and to eat proper Mexican.

You certainly have had a wonderful adventure! I'm sure that you are getting excited about home! And I'm sure your family is getting excited to have you back!
