Best part was the green lizards just after the sign that said, "green lizard."

I realized recently that while I'm now home from New Zealand (arrived in the middle of the night Thursday), that does not mean I won't continue to go on fun outdoor adventures or have new chocolate adventures and I'm thinking about making meat pies. All good stories to tell on the blog. Plus, then I can still imagine I am on sabbatical. The posts are likely to slow down, but not stop.

Before we started Alex listed all the mechanicals she might have on this trip --- the list was long. We all laughed. Then, we had mechanical round 1. Broken chain --- not on the list. Gave me the chance to take the nice panorama photo below.
Somehow last December/January, heading to summer in Christchurch made sense to me and sounded like fun. However, as fall settles in here, it seems quite odd to me to be returning to summer. Why is that?
Then there were the nettles (stung until the next day!)
This photo has the same lighthouse in it as a photo from my other Wollongong post. Cool to see it from such different locations.

Above is one of the many "swimming pools" they have along the beaches near Wollongong. Full of ocean water, but with some structure so you can swim laps without waves. Very cool idea. Below is just a nice shot of the head where we walked to for our morning adventure.

The trail up Mt. Nelson. Amazing that most of the native trees around Hobart are eucalyptus of one kind or another. This photo does not do it justice.
Thanks to the Hobart crew for an outstanding trip and I am definitely looking forward to a return trip!
