After a couple days of life with the van, we decided she was not really a Betty, and Matt has re-christened her "Lucy." Lucy the Lucida has taken us faithfully thus far. Here are some photos:
Lucy at Dickey Flat campground (free!), our first night out of Auckland
Sheep loading gate at Dickey Flat
Waitawheta River ("White-uh-feta") at Dickey Flat
Matt and one of two moonroofs!
Our first cookout lunch, at a park in Tauranga
Me pretending to be a master outdoor chef (yes, it was raining)
The "bed cave"
The van mascot, Bob (who you might recognize as Mr. Incredible). According to the previous owners, Bob is good luck and all the crap days they had with the van were when they took Bob down from his post. We were warned never to put him anywhere else :) His is Robert in formal situations, of course.
The living room
"front bulkhead" storage- groceries and odds and ends behind the seats
Side storage. Behind the chilly bin, we each have a plastic bin for our clothes.
Rear storage. Cooking and cleaning gear.
Matt got breakfast in bed this morning:)
Lucy in all her glory, at Lake Rerewhakaitu this morning (southeast of Rotorua).
My internet time is fast coming to a close right now, so I'll get you up to date on our recent meanderings another time. In the meantime, remember that "wh" in New Zealand makes an F sound!
