Karen,
I see you live in Whitby, when my son from Wellington was here on a visit last month he said " get ready we are taking you and dad to Whitby", it was three degrees outside but dry, I wasn`t keen but we went and had a good day together. Whilst we were in Wellington in November 2005 Stuart took us to "your Whitby" on a warm spring day.

I like the New Zealand Whitby . I'd been taken on a quick tour of the local environs by the lovely Dannyf when I came down for my interview and quite liked the look of it, so pleased it has turned out to be OK as I needed an address ASAP. It's lovely here

A few pictures from the scenic Marlborough Sound and the Queen Charlotte Sound walk which was awesome although a tad hot (I know I shouldn't complain).

If you have not visited I would thoroughly recommend, great excercise, awesome views and not overcrowded.

Well here we go with a few from our recent SI trip.....
Thanks to all for their photographic tips. Kids behaviour (or lack) meant that much was done on the hoof but the weather was kind, BTW these photos were all of Mt Cook and Lake Tekapo:

Hi Sammymac, alias Les Dawson!
Our son was here over Christmas from Wellington, no snow but cold temps. We had a bit last Saturday but further north it was much worse, people without power and dozens stranded on the A66. It must be great in NZ right now, lovely warm weather and no winter clothes!

I loved all these pics and thought anybody else who is new and hadn't seen them might like them.

Looks fantastic
