Thursday 3rd December 2015…who ordered rain???

I know I keep saying it but there should be a book about the beds of New Zealand like there is a book about the doors of San Miguel..they are so comfy…I feel great again this morning I am pretty sure I did not drink enough yesterday and hence I felt tired and sluggish….

I left this lovely little cabin at around 9am with grey skies and drops of rain but a good thing because today was going to be a driving day with a few stops of interest….with the first being at a beach called Shag Point…

As I was settling in a knock on the door would I like a beer or a glass of wine..no thanks but would love a cup of tea…a few minutes later a pot of tea and home made fruit cake appeared!!!

I was told that the house is my house so I washed my drink containers and put some food in the fridge and freezer

Reading about the doors of SMA leads me to the question as to where exactly did you live here in SMA? We have been here for two days and have walked literally till we dropped.
We are staying in a house in Azteca at the very edge over looking the pressa. Not sure if you know the area but we have also managed to walk to the Mega as well and many points in between.
Would love to know where you were as I think we would need less expensive digs than we have now.
We are loving it immensely and anything that you think would add to our experience would be appreciated. Budgets can such at times but they are a reality in life.
Looking forward to your book on beds in NZ, lol.
You certainly are having a great time. Safe travels.
Cheers
