This last week poor DH has had his tranquillity at home shattered with a houseful of our daughters and grand-daughters. Not only did eldest DD come home for a week but eldest GD came to stay too. Then most of the time youngest DD was here too with number 2 and 3 GD’s. Although he made the odd mumbling comments about a house full of women I think just quietly he enjoyed the pampering that ended up his way.
The West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island is a beautiful yet untamed massive stretch of under populated land. Our trip took us just over 1 1/2 hours and in that time we came across less than a dozen cars but boy did we go around some corners and by the end of the trip there I was well and truly sick of seeing nothing but local bush. These photo’s , of which there are plenty, I took at regular intervals, mainly to break the boredom of the trip.
The glacier itself I was kind of under whelmed with. I understand what it is and how old it is but the truth is it’s just an ice river and some of the local scenery impressed me more. I mean just look at the reflection photo- simply awesome and the colours in the ice are just stunning.
In saying that, we’ve done the tourist thing and been to see it so that is something else crossed off the ‘bucket list’.
I hope for those of you having your holiday time now, you are able to experience something new.
p.s. don’t forget to get in the draw for the little Sunbonnet Sue give away.
