Day 71- 75 (July 30th -August the 3rd) – Walk in the Park and Hogwarts Students in New Zealand.

I have had to find creative ways to layer and stay warm on our walks.   Nothing matched but I was warm!walking in layers

Stephen Covey, in his book says that there are some “Sharpening the Saw” activities that should always be done.  Eat right, get enough sleep and exercise everyday…even if it’s bad weather outside.  Much more to Bob’s credit we have done this everyday on our sabbatical.  This was a particularly blustery rainy day but we didn’t want to disappoint Covey so off we went.  Bob captured this video of our rainy and quite enjoyable walk.

Just on the other side of this park is a middle and high school.  Everyday at 3:00 the bell rings and the park becomes, for many, their pathway home or to the Pizza Hut or McDonalds just around the corner.  Every time they walk by we think of Harry Potter and Hogwarts.  The accents and uniforms just make it feel like we are almost there.  Just as Bob turned off the camera a boy walked by with Harry’s glasses…exactly.  In a “Barbara” moment Bob refers to these the school as … Hogworths:)  He may have to watch the movies again.
