Lake Tekapo & Beyond.
We packed up our car, and our enlarged family (!), and headed for Tekapo. The drive is about 4hrs, taking it easy, and we stopped on the way for a cuppa and a bite to eat. The closer we got to Tekapo, the thicker the snow on the mountains became, and by the time we arrived, mid afternoon, it’s was really quite cold and windy. We settled into our room, at the same place we’d stayed last time (we tend to be creatures of habit once we find something we like!), and then went for a wander around town, and got some supplies at the grocery store. We decided an…
Love is in the air….
I’ve haven’t been writing, cos I’ve been a lil caught up with my showing my beautiful new girlfriend the sights of the South Island. Ahhhh – that got your attention didn’t it!! Let me back up a bit… I went for a visit to the container mall with the Parentals the other day, and was enjoying the sights, sounds and smells – when suddenly the Parentals when rushing across the alley-way, oohing and ahhhing all the way. They dragged each other into one of the shops, and I popped my head out of the tall Mummas bag to see what was going on. I scanned around, then suddenly across the…
So, last night it was -4°. Right now, mid-afternoon, it’s 3°. The night air is already coming in – and it’s supposed be to colder tonight than it was last night. We’re huddled up on the couch, watching bad television, and being sooks today! 🙂
A lotta drivin’s been done!
Its been a busy week, and we’ve driven a long way. We stayed two days in Wellington – a city we really quite like. Went for huge walks around the port, piers, marinas and waterways, and again went in the cable-car, and visited the Te Papa Museum. The museum is such a huge place, over many different levels – and even if it wasn’t ever-changing, there is so much to see that you could never accomplish it in a full day. But we spent an enjoyable couple of hours there, then walked back to our unit. Cold, exhausted, but happy. The ferry across the Strait between the North and South…
Ya should a been there!! That’s all I can say – YA SHOULDA BEEN THERE!!! Today was almost the most fun I’ve had all trip! The Parentals decided it was a great day for a walk. Now me, I’m not into walking so much, but I do soooo like site-seeing, so I snuck into the tall Mummas bag once again, and off we went. First stop – and this was the best part – was at the cable car, up the hill, to look over Wellington. The Parentals went up last time they came here, and enjoyed it so much they wanted to do it again. I missed out last…
