No visit to Hastings is complete without a trip to the Rush Munro cafe for delicious locally-produced ice cream:

Jane and I both had passionfruit ice cream, which was so delicious that, as you can see, God bathed us in celestial light.

My time in the Hawke’s Bay was just the kind of relaxing break I needed – and it was such a pleasure to spend time with Jane and her parents, and the adorable Edith. This child is enchanting, even when she’s asleep:

And during her six-week visit she’s grown considerably and also learned how to stand. She’s obviously very advanced.

Geoff, Jane and Edith should be back in NZ next January for a mutual friend’s wedding, so Jane and I are already planning the holiday that the three of them will take with Tristan and me. It will involve plenty of vineyard tours and lunches in the Hawke’s Bay sun, for starters.
