Previously, May 2019. What my blog is about:
Bob and I returned to New Zealand from Australia last August , after three months sailing with our friends Don & Lesley Brown, on their Oyster 66, ‘True Blue’, with the 2nd Oyster World Rally.
We then took four months in America and Europe visiting family before returning to New Zealand in December 2018. While we were back in Europe we bought a house in New Zealand, we had been looking for a while without finding what we were looking for, but then legislation was about to prevent people from overseas buying in New Zealand, so we bought our house unseen on the recommendation of our real estate agent while we were away (crazy right!). Happily it was one of the best decisions we had ever made. And the entire purchase process with us in Europe, the sellers in Texas and the real estate agent in New Zealand was so crazy we were more than living up to our nickname “the Crazies”…
We didn’t move into our new home until November 2019, as having made the purchase we then headed off on Crazy Daisy again for 5 months sailing the Pacific Islands with the Pacific Rally.
