And the adventure begins! Marilyn and I hit the road early for the long drive north. When you’re this deep in the south, everything is a long way away. We had a vague itinerary but nothing was set in stone. It was nice driving with the windows down, the music turned up and the sun shining bright.
As the scenery passed by, so did the array of topics as we caught up with one another. Despite not seeing each other for years, we easily fell right back into it again.
Our road trip was off to a great start, and I hoped it would continue. The New Zealand summer can be fickle and you never know when the clouds will roll in. But for now, the sky was blue and we only had the open road ahead of us.
