My artistic day with plenty of 'sustaining gourmet delights.'

Today began with a quick trip to the 'Bay' with Perdy to see if the much vaunted new cycle/walk bridge had been installed in the middle of the night. Voila---it had. Now we need to wait patiently for the remainder of the bay enhancement programme (NZ$28 million)to be completed. Perdy and I then headed to Doug's where after a quick cuppa and a slice of his delightful cake, we set about drilling holes in pumice and threading the 'stones' onto fishing line. Yeah, I know--not necessarily artistic but with the addition of a few shells collected from special places, we were both happy with the results. Perdy 'helped' and then resumed her endless search for the elusive possum. All that's needed now--a visit to the Gypsy Fair and a feed of NZ Green Lipped mussels and a small helping of chicken stew, cooked gently in the oven. Perdy of course had yet another walk. What's she doing now? Why--she's crashed on the bed! www.authorneilcoleman.com
