Dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free

Last week I had to go away for work for a couple of days. Nothing new, that. Only this time, instead of going to anywhere central, I was going to places where it's hard and expensive to get a plane to. So nobody batted an eyelid when I opted to hire a car and drive it.

Road trip!

.. and Dad popped up in the back of my mind and reminded we of why we never listened to The Doors when I was a kid..

If they say I never loved you
You know they are a liar

"Terrible grammar! They should be ashamed of themselves!"


The Brunch Bagel and a slightly scorched coffee there, then left at Woodville and throught the ever-increasing dairy farms of Pahiatua and Eketahuna, 100km roads all the way to Featherston. Coming up the Tuks after a scorching trip through the long strung-out southern Wairarapa towns, the temperature slowly started to drop, until at the summit it had got down to 17. And it was raining as I got home.

Pretty much sums it up really...
