We walked the 8km from Clifton into Takaka on a sunny day, passing this grand old lady on the way. I think I have seen more classic vehicles here than anywhere, most running but some in retirement like this Bedford truck.

There has been another annoying change to our flight home. Emirates now require a negative Covid test certificate for all passengers arriving at or transiting Dubai, taken within 96 hours of departure. Our flight was on a Tuesday and it was not possible to get this done over a weekend so we have had to book later in the week. Now keeping fingers crossed that this is the last change!
