We have take off!

Well today was the day.
As you can see from the photo below, hand over took place at Kinlock today.
Eddie and Margaret were quite sad to see their lovely bus move on. They are a lovely couple and I hope to catch up with them on my travels.
So we left Kinlock at around midday and arrived back in Walton at around 3pm with a couple of stops on the way, one in Tokoroa for lunch and one in Putararu to look for a noise that we eventually found on the way home.
My new baby drives well and handles great, it will take a bit to get used to the gear box and I need to learn how to back slowly and not run over the neighbour's letterbox. Still after panelbeating the bike rack and standing the letterbox up no harm, no foul!
This is so exciting! More tomorrow!

At new home in Walton.

    If you're passing through Wellsford, stop for a tea/coffee catchup :-)
