Sitting here @our Goose Bay Heaven Boat Harbour hideaway enjoying a sunny morning breakfast watching the seals cavort in the cove Will walk over for a paper later and enjoy the last few days of what has been for us two a great unwinder from All the shakes and an opportunity to enjoy The Paradise called New Zealand we live in.We are planning to do this again next year We may go to the North Island .We may go to Bluff Oyster Festival via Otago and The Catlins.Looking forward to catching up with ALL Canterbury Grownups Friends and lunch on Saturday too. Also Audreys Cafe Selection next Monday our 102nd BITOFADO.
The seas have been huge along the Kaikoura Coast today and the sun and blue skies magnificent. We had a morning cappuchino @ LURE Cafe & Bar @ boat harbour and enjoyed the views early and went to Kaikoura for supplies returning for a late lunch in our Cove. The seals had moved into the coastal area all along roadside as big seas pound the coast.We are staying now until Friday morning and then heading for home.Shortly time for a vino.Thinking of you all.
Just remembered today is the FIRST ANNIVERSARY of Canterbury Grownups Trip to Lyttelton where we escaped the 5.13 in THE LOONS CLUB only to experience the 6 plus on way home or at home in our case. A Whole year since that event and not one of us has suggested going back to Lyttelton.??/ not even Wogs or Summerwoods.??/Now you would think that Bess001 would be interested in all those cracks in Lyttleton Tunnel tiles.???

Welcome home again. We we concerned that you might have got snowed in somewhere.
Thanks for all the updates of your trip we have always found them very interesting.
It is going to be a shock for our Aucklander's with this weather. Just hope they don't get snowed in for tomorrow.
Alz will get back to you re his choice but we were going to check a new place out today but after we were out for shopping we then decided to call it a day.
Looking forward to tomorrow and pray for a little better weather.
