The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can, 

Pursuing it with eager feet, 

until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And whither then? 

I cannot say. 

-J.R.R. Tolkein, in The Fellowship of the Ring (p. 38)

Tauranga, you’ll always be home.

See you again.
