We are still in Alert Level 4 Lockdown (the highest level). Yesterday it was announced that all New Zealand except Auckland north which includes us will go down to Level 3 at midnight on Tuesday. As far as Auckland and Northland (us) are concerned it will be reviewed again on Monday.
We are quite happy in Lockdown and the only problems have been Doug's Doctor's appointment for his drivers' licence medical which has now been cancelled twice and his appointment for his dental plate as he lost a tooth from it several weeks ago and is wearing an old plate. Next week the only appointment is for the car to have a service but we are not worried about that being postponed.
So we stay home except for our daily walk around the streets and today the Teddy Bears had a new conversation.
We are trying to keep up with exercise - I know I am not doing as much as last Lockdown. We do that that daily walk and I do my morning sit-ups as well as a few stretch exercises.

We weren't sure what this (presumably native) tree is
