A Wonderful Interlude

Jan 20, 14 A Wonderful Interlude

welcome -

With less than a week to go before heading back to California, we lucked out and were able to go to a bach (holiday cottage) at Pukehina Beach. The weather had been ┬ávery blowy and not very pleasant but we certainly won’t going to give up the interlude opportunity presented to us.

Winding Down

Jan 15, 14 Winding Down

Just a week left here in New Zealand. Time has flown by and now I am winding down, getting ready to leave next week. It’s really hard to believe I have been here for 2 1/2 months! And even though we haven’t wandered far from Tauranga, we have done and seen a lot of stuff! Definitely keeping it local, something that I am working on in my grannytravels blog – which is not up to date because we have been so busy. A catch22!

It’s Been a Busy Week!

With Christmas over, the New Year blasted in – and out! And now it is just two and a half weeks until I leave. It’s hard to believe I have been here since mid-November. So we are packing in the expeditions, but I don’t know if we can accomplish all we have planned.

Christmas, Done and Dusted

Dec 26, 13 Christmas, Done and Dusted

P1070797Father Christmas visited and was very generous!

We had a lovely day, despite the fact that it was rather windy and gray. Early evening it cleared up so we had cocktails around the pool, but had dinner inside.

Nearly Christmas

Gourmet Market at the Mount

Gourmet Market at the Mount

Two days to Christmas and I’ve been reveling in the warmth – balmy 70-75 every day, perfect temperatures. It’s so funny, people are complaining it’s too warm and I can’t get enough of it, not just because I’ve been living in Washington too long, but it just feels right for me, anyway! It rained like crazy last night (the veges won’t need watering today) and it’s overcast this morning, but not cold. We all hope it clears up for Christmas day so we can have dinner around the pool.
