Day 5 – Lets go for a Swim

The days are flying by and we have already been here 4 days. Today was a really special moment for Linda as Manny had arranged for her to be in the pool for Reilly’s swimming lesson. I dont think ive seen Linda look so happy and proud as they swam and sang along to the swimming songs in the pool. A special moment to witness and one to live forever in Linda’s heart and mind. Reilly was a little superstar as he tried to swim and wasn’t fazed at all by going under water.

Once we had dried off and got back home me and Linda went for a walk down on the Oakley Creek walkway. A short but brilliant little walk along the riverbank, through trees and along a walkway. At times it was like being in the jungle in the plants and trees and with the humid air. A nice pleasant way to spend the afternoon. We returned home for tea and then Chris took us on another walk up Mt Albert which gave some more stunning views of the city. We timed it just right to catch a gorgeous fiery sunset. Just the kind of day we wanted today as we prepare for the start of our 9 day road trip tomorrow morning. Up bright and early tomorrow to collect the hire car and hit the road to Hobbiton and Rotorua.
