You guys are most definitely having fun. The surfing looked great.

A couple of things I promised:

1. Fishin Guide Tongariro River near Taupo for Fly Fishing


2. Daniel Schuster Wines - The drive on the wine estate that I said we drove to and went up past the parking lot to an area outside that said, "No Parking Except for Norwegians" The wine is great!!!!!!!

I listened to many enthusiastic reviews of this wine before I had the chance to taste it for myself. The experience certainly wasn’t an anti-climax despite the high expectation. This is a sophisticated and seriously powerful Pinot Noir with great complexity. It is a taut and refined style that gives a serious nod in the direction of Burgundy. From a great hillside site in the Waipara region that, when conditions are right, can produce world-beating Pinot Noir.
