April Holiday: Homeward Bound

Leaving Golden Bay felt sad. We delayed by stopping in Takaka again, and having coffee in the park with Amy and a friend while the children played.
 Then it was back up and over the Takaka hill and down towards Nelson where we had coffee with Raewyn before heading back to Picton.

 On Friday we caught the ferry back to the North Island, and was sad to say goodbye. At our age there is always an awareness that 'this might be the last time.'

Heading up the Kapiti Coast, just past Pukerua Bay, the sky was starting to cloud over, but it was still stunningly beautiful.

 We stayed in Palmerston North again for a night, and went out to dinner with Jeff and Konny. The clock tower in the central square is stunning in its tackiness! But it was lovely to spend time with my 'baby' boy and his fiance.
 Then suddenly it was over. Somewhere in the north was home.
