I have a number of photos that I have used as desktops on various computers. Most of them hold some memory or have a background of some meaning for me. The quality of the photos however, is quite variable.
In this occasional series I will describe some of those. We might sub-title this one “tranquility”.
We left Geraldine in rain and continued north towards Christchurch. I wanted to see Lyttleton and it’s harbour so we drove through the tunnel and looked for a nice cafe. Sadly the town is not large vehicle friendly. However the harbour is impressive.
We decided to go to the South side to a campsite and so drove around the shore – which is a narrow, winding, steep road. Just what Hania likes.
It was getting late by the time we reached Orton Bradley Park and no internet. I was too tired to take photos and anyway we were busy sorting out the van so we could transfer our belongings smoothly.
I can’t believe they have 12 grass tennis courts here, must be a lot of upkeep.
We headed up to Timaru to see old friends Judd, Jenny and Graham. A great lunch and an afternoon of lively conversation and, we must admit, a little gossip. The garden was in the English style and has been a long time in the making. We won’t be able to achieve anything as nice in our paddocks but we’ll work on it.
We were a bit late getting away so stopped at the large holiday camp in Tekapo.
Good to be in McKenzie country again with the late afternoon sunshine.
