Warm Winds of Summer

Warm Winds of Summer

As individuals individuals who know me, I’m a little of the clothes-equine. I really like variety in fashion and colour with what I put on and condensing my clothing apparel to 1 backpack and also the limited options for 9 several weeks is really a challenge for me personally. In addition, experiencing cold temperature for days on finish meant putting on exactly the same factor again and again, possibly altering up which layer came first! Well, we’ve finally hit some the sunshine and that i feel a release – having the ability to vary my clothing options and lastly having the ability to put on an attractive little merino tunic I bought in Dunedin. Freedom! Existence is nice. And incredibly simple at this time around within our lives, as you have seen by my deep thoughtfulness :)

Golden Bay is a little of the jaunt from Greymouth. Despite the fact that it is not far in kilometers, you will find many winding, weaving streets that take so lengthy they are driving. Hairpin turn to another and in the center of one there’s one hundred km sign that’s just completely freaky

Freedom – The Sunshine & New Clothing!

. Who might drive greater than 40 km/hour on these high cliff-edge turns?

We remained in another favourite place known as the Innlet. Hosts Katie and Jonathan produce a friendly, communal feeling we actually didn’t wish to leave. After a powerful 6-hour hike that we wasn’t i could complete (I had been prepared to tuck along with sheep on that one) along with a peek at some filming of “The Astonishing Race” Television show, we hobbled home and cooked up a BBQ chicken meal with fresh NZ salad. Jim lost his lens cap that is so unlike him. He hiked out the following day to ascertain if he could retrieve it. Not a chance. It might have been an omen…

After two nights in the Innlet, we headed towards the beloved Abel Tasman National Park. The turquoise hue of water appears unreal along with a day’s kayaking onto it, preventing in at pristine whitened sandy beaches and spending time with the closes would be a perfect way of spending each day. Much to the surprise we had a Blue Penguin plus some type of shark. My poor, weak arm muscles were conscious of their missing fitness following a day’s paddling!

Now’s the storyline you’ve all been awaiting and also the episode when Jim ‘lost his precious’. We went for any lengthy hike across the shoreline in to the park and soon after hrs, I headed back and Jim ongoing on further. In the enthusiasm to pursue the right photograph inside a creek, he lost his footing and fell cracking his ribs on the rock, *gasp* splashing water on his lens and breaking his graphite tripod! He went completely to our hostel. Ouch, ouch, and ouch!

I had been served by the vehicle, completely exploring Kaiteriteri Beach, sitting people-watching and writing letters

. Our meet-up there was a time scheduled to become 6:00pm and so i was oblivious towards the drama happening in the park. Our gracious hosts at Kunuka Lodge (Cath and Allan) tended to both lens by submerging it in grain and putting it right into a heated space and taking care of Jim’s injuries by providing him ice and arnica for his ribs. The good thing is the lens is okay and Jim’s ribs are sore but tolerable except as he sneezes.

We’re very grateful this episode switched view it did since it might have place a ‘dent’ within our departure date. The world was dealing with us!
