Fishing for Gurnard

While we were in Greymouth recently we stopped at the local marina where we saw quite a few fishermen/and women surfcasting off the rocks. We chatted with a couple who were there from Tauranga - the wife was saying she'd love to move to here whereas the husband said he wouldn't but they did say that the most fish they catch seems to be Gurnard.



We did happen to see a pod of dolphins swimming past at the same time so that was a huge highlight for us. Since then I've also had my booster shot and I'm expecting B and my 3 adult children to get theirs too.

And speaking of the West Coast I have some news. We have decided to move to Greymouth by Winter of this year. B's job has been gradually slowing down up here and he has been offered steady regular work down there, my adult children and I can transfer our jobs from here to there. Our goal is to buy a house as properties are alot less expensive there so we are really excited so that is going to be our forever place where we don't have to move again.

Like wow and wow. Well done and I hope you realize you will have to develop webbed feet to cope with Greymouth rainfall. It's a great place and I hope you really love it there.

That's great news, Amy. Greymouth looks like a great place to call home. I checked out the wikipedia site and it sounds great. You and your family must be very happy.

Sounds like your prospective move is a good thing.
I had to google Gurnard and it is quite the fish. I had never heard of it so I learned something thanks to you.

That's a long distance to move, Amy, and I hope it all goes well for you. What a thrill it will be to own your own home. Best of luck with it all :) xx
