Christmas in Summer

It's rather odd.
I'm sorting photos late into the night at the momment before we trundle off into the mountains for the New Year tomorrow. It's just occured to me that I should probably work on being up past midnight and up for the dawn, just to be one of the first couple million people to welcome 2009...

Hopefully, I'll be getting a new system worked out that will allow for more regular photo posting and (very optimistically) more regular textual posts as well.
We've been puttering around the south island for over a month now I think, and summer is hitting. today was showing 28C in the shade at about 4pm. It was pretty full on. So we went swimming over in Littleton. Which was great! the water was actually warm enough to stay out in for 20 mins or so. and only 2 or 3 of my toes were yellow by the time we got out!

Anyway, yeah gotta finish up and get to sleep if tomorrow night is going to be as short as seems likely!

Ummm yeah...

It's far too late to make my own post now but... it really was surreal.

After 2 weeks in Nelson, we're planning to move on tomorrow. We've got a week to try and do as much of the south island as possible before Christmas.

Then the maddness starts.

Also: Billy Connolly in Rotrua on Feb 21!!!

At least I'm Journaling

Well, I should say at least I'm Journaling more more than I've been blogging. :)

We're in Nelson now, after a couple days camping near Blenheim. Yup, we're on the South Island. We came down on the ferry on Nov 21st, and went pretty much straight to Hopewell, about 20km as the tui flys from Picton when the ferry lands, but over 100km by road which takes about 2 and a half hours to drive. It's a really bendy road.

So.. since the beginning of November, eh?

Yikes. And my photos are even more behind.
well let's see what we can do.
