Getting outdoors in Nelson Lakes

On foot!

I can't believe our luck, only 4 days of really good weather this school holidays and we choose them to go tramping at Nelson Lakes National Park.

What stunning views, a bit wet underfoot which made it interesting but superb all the same.

The Delima!

Wet days make us do cleaning up or storing stuff inside! 

But where do you start?

A wet game

Sport doesnt stop because of a little bit of rain and just as well because we would surely all be fat a lazy at this time of year.

The Drover and his dog watches over those entering the Feilding township, whether it is day or night, wet or dry. 

Dressed for every occasion of course. 

Mud Racing

There's nothing like getting out in the elements for a good ol' blast in the rain and getting totally muddy. Add a bit of darkness and you have an experience worth many more hours on a playstation!

Early mornings

The best thing about going to work early is the sunrises or early morning light.

Moss on the roof!

Light on the moss growing on the neighbours roof attracted my daughters attention and she had a go at capturing it on camera.

Not bad for a beginner if you ask me. She's enthused about the little photo comps happening on . The subject was 'Symmetry'.

Cultures combine

Three cultures combine for an evening of games. China, USA and Kiwi,. Any possible language barriers are broken by the laughter and excitement of a bit of a game on the football table.

Home grown

There's nothing quite like growing your own and when the weather is nice (for winter) you can't help getting out in the garden, giving it a good dig over and planting something. 

It's still a bit cool  in our region for many things, but brocolli are hardy and apparently good to get under way now. So I have planted a collection ready for spring.

Fog in route

Fog is common in these parts, between Rotorua and Taupo. It always creates an interesting atmosphere for photography on an early morning drive.

A drive where we were on a mission to get to an event therefore a stop was not an option. And of course it was much warmer inside the van. This taken through the windscreen as we were driving along.
