I think not.
The Saturday of the Flying Wok trip was a terrific storm with heavy rain and strong Northerly winds. Nevertheless the trip went ahead although two of the wokkers elected to stay home and Tom left "Doris" in the Nelson marina and travelled to Webber's house in French Pass by car.
While driving to French Pass we saw a lake before Rai Valley which had been pastures, It extended across the road through Ronga Valley. Several small slips over the road were cleared and the yard outside Webbers holiday house was a pond because of the blocked stream.
The Saturday night dinner menu specified fish cakes but as the weather prevented launching George's "Bossanova" and the menu could not be changed, tinned tuna was obtained from the local store to make the fish cakes.
The house TV had Sky Sports and so the All Black vs Fiji rugby featured as did the Tour de France race for the cyclists.
|A pond? No, it's the car park.|
Sunday was a little better (weather wise) and so we made a couple of trips in 'Bossanova" to catch fish and mussels (as specified in the weekend menu) in Current Basin. Tom and Dick left early in the morning to return to Nelson to pick up "Doris"
|Pelorus Jack was here!|
A new game was introduced on Sunday night - Beer Tasting. I wonder if Stoke Brewery will sponser beer for the next Flying Wok trip!
