Hello Friends,
Another morning in the garden, filling the big hole left by the stump and digging another two holes and filling them with Strelitzia nicolai's, a nice palm type tree that will grow to hopefully 4 metres. Hard work but satisfying. Shower and on to seafood market, I like to go every day to check out any new fish that has come in.

Finally a chance to go out to dinner and relax this time trying a Thai Restaurant in Rothesay Bay, North Shore, Auckland, 5 minutes drive from where I live.

I find Thai food quite generic and unless you know what to order you are very often disappointed, but I think I nailed it this time, and ordered the above meal which consisted of boned roast duck, green beans, red capsicum in a fragant lemongrass red curry, you could really taste the coconut in this delicately flavoured sauce. I would give it an 8 out of 10.

No points lost for being overcharged $50 as I picked it up straight away and the maitre'd was so apologetic and nice, a keypad problem compounded by her not wanting to wear glasses.

It's encouraging to see you guys following the postings, feel free to comment. Ciao for now.
