Some stormy weather along the road from Hawke’s Bay to the Manawatu: Lots of wind, then lots of rain. The van held out well, only springing a minor middle-of-the-night leak in Palmerston North. Anyway, all the info is in the latest e-mail update, and if you click here you can read it in your browser.
Lots of pix and not really enough room in the updates to include them, so here’s a wee gallery of some images from Hastings through the Manawatu to the Wairarapa. Click anywhere in the gallery for a closer view and a slide show.

OK, slightly staged, but the wind was something fierce that day in Dannevirke and it won in the end.
