Yes I’m back, Got in on Saturday afternoon after a 12 hour flight from Auckland, New Zealand, back to good old San Francisco.
My two weeks in New Zealand with my wife Lois was wonderful. Beautiful country with weather similar to our local Northern California weather. As many of you know, our son Karl has been working in Antarctica and we met in New Zealand for two weeks vacation together.
At the rate Karl has been traveling the world these days, it’s the only chance we get to see him for a while. He’s heading to Nepal via Bangkok so he can hike up to the Mount Everest base camp and snap a few photos. Ah, to be young again.
I thought I’d throw in a few photos of my own I took in New Zealand. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed SEEING them!
More tomorrow. Now, back to wading through a couple thousand e-mails that came while I was gone … or, as they say … back to reality. /Gary
