My Mac battery is fried, my ethernet cable only holds a connection if propped by three coasters at exactly the right position, my 28-105 lens has a smashed filter ring on the front (pried off the glass so I could keep shooting), and my waterproof binocs leak. This has been a hard trip on gear.
R and I agree that the best day and the worst day in NZ were the same day – the day we hiked in the southland that ended with his broken ankle. The scenery haunts my memories. I didn’t get enough of this country.
There are people, places and things we miss, and we are heading home. But we will be back, and I hope it’s soon.
