Back in the Motherland!
I'm back in the part of New Zealand where I grew up, on the Kowhai Coast about an hour north of NZ's largest city, Auckland. It's probably about 70 F, a little blustery at times as if it might rain, but then the sun comes out again. Starting tomorrow, it is supposed to be clear and sunny - just in time for our Painting Holiday which starts in the morning after we pick up our seventeen American guests at the Auckland Airport. If you'd like to follow along, we'll be blogging about this week's painting holiday at www.PaintNewZealand.blogspot.com.
