Be nice wouldn’t it? To see Wellington from the air. We waved off a bride-to-be, dressed in a beautiful gown on her father’s arm, with her bridesmaids accompanying them. We wondered where they were going. So many beautiful destinations within a short helicopter flight from Wellington. Such a stunning day for a wedding. Maybe to […]
Easy on the Ears & Cocktails at Naptime
After four week’s of listening to Sophie’s hacking cough night and day I made the call to the doctors; surely it wouldn’t be ‘just a cold’, ‘just a virus’?

We spent Sunday afternoon catching up and enjoying the stunning sunshine and blissful warmth. After a mammoth BBQ we walked […]
Extreme Sports Start Early in New Zealand
Driving along Jervois Quay, Wellington, at a weekend it is difficult to keep ones eyes on the road when children as young as three are hurtling skyward on a Vertical Bungy. Today it was our wee Charlotte’s turn for an adrenaline rush. She proudly told the operator she was nearly four and he took one […]
