Tuesday March 17th and it is raining again today. It is a much lighter rain but it is cold and windy also and the wind is out of the south so it would be a headwind for my bike ride. I just might end up on a bus tour of New Zealand instead of a bike tour. I am tired of all the rain. I did almost nothing today except read a couple books and a bunch more magazines I found. I also spent lots of time on the computer but did not get much done thanks to the 1989 speed of the wifi. It takes over 5 minutes to load one pic and some of them time out before they finish loading. I hate it.
I will pack my bags tonight in the hopes that I will be able to get back on the road in the morning. Napier is the next place I want to stop and it is a long ride away of about 90 miles. Plus I need to buy a helmet at the first place I can find because it is illegal to ride without a helmet here. It would be just my luck to get a ticket on top of needing to buy a new helmet. I hope not. I would load some pics but it is just too irritating to load them. When I find a faster connection I will try to come back and load some pics. I loaded two and gave up cause it is too frigging slow. These are during the rain and the next day when the rain stopped and the creek was going back down.
