Fast & Slow Lanes - Mike

Fast & Slow LanesTwo flights, 20 hours and a day lost to the International date line took us from our home in Oakland California to the city of Nelson on the South Island of New Zealand.

A mid-morning arrival left us with a bit of time before check-in at the cottage we'll be staying the next three nights so we stopped off at the local beach park to grab a bite to eat.

Enjoying the food and the view, we notice that the giant slide at the Tahunanui park proudly declares Fast & Slow Lanes in large, slightly crooked letters running down its side.  Seems in many ways a fitting caption for the start of this trip.
