What in the world have we been up to?

My, how time waddles. Time is flightless here just like many of the birds. For instance, the penguin:


We’ve been exploring all over the South Island the past two months, both on our own and with various visitors who have accompanied us. Tomorrow we head off again to meet up with more visitors, so we thought we’d try and post a few pictures before we leave again.

We went kayaking up in Kaikoura.


Where we walked through a vast colony of seals (and took 300+ pictures).

We went tramping in Arthur’s Pass where we stayed one night in this great little hut.

Mekayla attended a Permaculture Design Course (which she says she’ll post on eventually) up in the Tui community near Abel Tasman NP. Here is one of the houses there. Unfortunately we never saw it while the dragon was smoking because it wasn’t cold enough yet for them to be using the fireplace.

And here is a vast set of sand dunes near Farewell Spit at the northern tip of the South Island.

These photos are just to whet your appetite. We spent the past two weeks sorting and editing all of the photos we have taken in New Zealand. 7500 photos has now been reduced to 1600. When we get back from the two week trip we leave on tomorrow we’ll start uploading sets of them for people to enjoy.
