Catlins Great Escape Coastal Walk No 4 is on 6 April 2013

It's from Purakaunui Bay to Papatowai.. about 15 km on the rugged
Catlins Coast. These walks are one-off opportunities to see normally
inaccessible coastline. Cost is $50 pp with profits to local search
and rescue volunteer group.

I plan to go.. you'll see me at the tail end, puffing along.

Sunshine continues

View over the ocean this morning so calm, blue, lovely as Lloyd set off exploring the reefs at low tide.. some great phone calls,  then discussion group outing over the neighbour's picturesque and healthy dairy farm. I took a mountain bike ride later and got puffed out, dog laughin' at me. Two beers with family on their deck and that's about my day. Oh.. Edendale was the subject of 'my town' on National Radio.. I learned stuff.

Perth, WA

WA has been a wonderful experience for us, enjoying Carolyn's cheerful company and lovely sights of Perth City and the SW corner which is my fav part of Oz. I was also able to attend a 2 day conference for the Kenya diaspora here.. about 15000 Kenyans are in Australia, approx. About $120m USD is remitted on average, every MONTH,to Kenya from the diaspora worldwide. This is huge. There are lots of issues about citizenship and voting in elections, about inward investment, about how to harness the skills of those living at a distance..I enjoyed meeting as many as possible.. a great vibe.
