Long overdue post

I’m  long overdue with a blog post. We’ve just returned from a fantastic day skiing on the Remarkable mountains. Here’s a quick pic from a viewpoint that we could see our house from.  I’m back up tomorrow for an ice climbing course. Its all great here.  I’ve even had a few days where I’ve went […]

Our view today

We had a great cruise on the lake today after a big skiing day yesterday. Turned out it was a private cruise as noone else booked….which was great as we went to the far side of the lake. Its such a great day I wish it didn’t have to get dark!

Morning Exercise in Queenstown

Arthur’s Pass to Christchurch

We have arrived in Christchurch awaiting my mum’s arrival on Thursday (erm, which I thought was on Wednesday until recently!).  Ooops. The last 10 days have been great heading down the West Coast and stopping for the night in lakeside campsites.  We spent about a week in and around the Arthur’s Pass mountainous area which […]

Hi All, and a belated Happy New Year to everyone. Although it may sound like we’ve been living ‘off grid’ with no updates, we haven’t been, it’s just that time on the road flies, and days are busy, and laptops aren’t picked up.  Photos for this post will come later! We took in Christmas in […]
