Land Ahoy!

Last weekend, we got away from it all. 
No phones, no computers, no stress...
 Just family, friends, waves and amazing countryside.

We relaxed and learnt new skills.
We took a moment to value and cherish friendships.
(My children adore this gorgeous woman, and so do I. We relished spending time with her and her lovely family.)

 We soaked up the beauty, the sights and the smells of the Marlborough Sounds.
We smiled as the little folk learned together, marvelled together and made great memories.
It was a truly magical weekend and one which reminded me why we choose to live in New Zealand.
Its not the picturesque beauty of the landscape that makes this place home, but the warmth of the people who have welcomed us and become our friends.


  1. looks idyllic!
    And made me ever so little homesick. The sounds are so beautiful!
