Thank you Ross, Belinda and Jono for all the wonderful photos and reports! Well done for braving the weather and staying on throughout the concert! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif So wish I could've been there, hopefully next time she is in NZ I will be able to make it.
Thanks to everyone who came to the lovely Blackbarn winery the other night. We had an amazing time and I was so overwhelmed by the audience who despite the 'stunning weather', sat there with their Kiwi wet weather gear on, and seemed to still have a great time! Love to you all...FI xx
Well I made it safely back to Christchurch. Yesterday I almost forgot it was my birthday (must be getting old lol). At least Hayley was my birthday gift, but I didn't want the rain that went with it lol.
Graeme the Gannets at Cape Kidnappers do fly to Australia. They also go when 3 months old and on the first flight they do they head off to Australia via the tip of the North Island or South via Cooks Strait. Only 20% survive to reach 3 years of age.
Today before I went on the ferry I went to Te Papa , which is the National museum, to see the Last day of Pompeii exhibition which was great.
The trip on the ferry was good with a smooth sea but we hit fog going across the straight and the fog horn had to be blown every few minutes lol. The weather was much better in the Sounds this time as you can see by the photos below.
Now here are some scans from the Hawke's Bay Today paper.
Belated Happy Birthday Ross! Was the concert actually on you birthday?
I too had a Hayley concert at my birthday in my home town cathedral, Peterborough, but in my case it was two days after my birthday. But it was ceretainly the highlight of my birthday weekend, as I'm sure it was for you.
Well it's been over 2 weeks since the concert - and I've been away since then - but I still haven't gotten over it! It was awesome.
It's a great disappointment once the concert finishes though, I must admit.. You don't want it to be over, and there's nothing (Hayley-wise) left to look forward to... yet.
Can't wait to book my next concerts in the near future! Hopefully I'll be able to get to see one or two shows in other parts of the country when she tours here (depends on work). There's no way I'd miss an Auckland show though!
