John and Penny came here in 1936 to a mass of trees willow prunus pines and macrocarpas all to within 3 meters of the house,all had to be cleared and in doing so they completely exposed to the wind ...nothing between them and the southern Alps! It takes at least a generation to have shelter again.

Christmas Break
Kylie John Ed & Elia
As we leave the wet weather behind in Brisbane
was nice to arrive in
NZ (Christchurch to a windy but dry day)
After our first night...up early and on our way camping ...
Just 45 minutes up the road ...but you really feel the beautiful
just 5 minutes out of the City
We (mum & dad)
slept in a very comfortable self contain Cabin...
The tent was just outside our door
each morning ED & Elia
would come in and have breakfast...
so lovely to see little faces....when you awake ..
Day 1
Putting up what they call a Flick up Tent
And then off on a Train ride around the mountains ...
Usually it's a Stream Train
with all the heat and wind's it was cancelled and the Normal Train was used
most enjoyable

The view from the Train
Just Starting
