After three days in Los Angeles, it’s home again – only to jet off two weeks later for our second house-sitting assignment in the Kingdom of Tonga, this time a private house on its very own island. Even more remote than the resort we looked after, this property is right on the very edge of a reef, so calm waters one side of the long narrow island, and the full might and expanse of the Pacific Ocean on the other!
Mid-October, and after a day or two at two at the Hilton in Fiji (how else to reacquaint ourselves with civilisation?) we’re back in NZ for the mad build-up to Christmas. The construction industry that is, not the shopping malls!
And we’re still wondering how to squeeze a house-sitting assignment in Panama into that lot!!!
