Dunedin, New Zealand, my city - my people

Hit the decks running...

Early last week we were traveling down the centre of the South Island of NZ showing our friends from Australia our beautiful country. We arrived in Dunedin on Wednesday lunchtime and we have been busy since. On Wednesday afternoon I had meetings. We were out working Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Of course on Sunday I led the service. Today, my day off we have been taking our friend around Dunedin sights before she begins her journey back to Australia tomorrow. It has been good to catch up and to feel "at home" with someone even though we do not get to spend time together very often. One of our visitors has been a young woman who is a down syndrome sufferer, who has also had a number of other health issues. She has been a delight to have around. Tomorrow we say our goodbyes until we next visit Adelaide sometime. I share some of the photos of our time together.
The rest of this week feels overwhelmingly busy, but I guess I'll survive. I do notice my health issues improve away from the busyness of work.
