The Storm that Sent Us on our Way

You know the one. Your fence or letter box may have been blown down or that tree by your bus stop was left with no branches. You may be missing a front door or have gained a trampoline that used to be in the lawn two streets over from you. In Auckland they had lightning and they said it was beautiful. We just had wind and rain. 

A good send off, I feel, though our flight was delayed somewhat. Tonight we feast and tomorrow marks the first stage of the journey. We will go sleepless until we are in Europe - 100 days of wine and good food and sun (if we're being optimistic). 

For those in Wellington, stay warm and don't bother replacing your umbrella.
