Day 305 - Raglan, New Zealand

Day 305 – 9th April 2006 +11:00 GMT Total Miles 60607

The fire station is at the back of the hostel so in the middle of the night the sirens start blaring for about 10 minutes. I am guessing that it wakes the whole town up so the firemen know to get up and come to the fire station. It sounded like an air raid siren going off. Managed to get back to sleep and when I woke up it was pouring with rain so decided to have a lazy morning, with just a visit to the local shops for junk food. After lunch I went for a walk along the beach and around the peninsula, the sun had decided to come out for an hour so I took advantage before the rain started again.

Jill and I then went to visit the food market which sold the best Pesto so we bought a large jar and ate it with bread and crackers. In the evening we had a family meal at the hostel, everyone had to cook or buy something, i.e. a meat or vegetable dish or dessert and then it all gets put on the table and we help ourselves. So Jill and I bought a chocolate cheesecake at 7pm we got a huge feast, with Fish Pie, Burritos, pasta salads, cous cous and many many more dishes. We spent the rest of the evening watching a film.
