Our batteries have been recharged after a wonderful four-day mini-break in Central Otago.
I grew up holidaying in the area with my aunty and her family, and it’s one of my favourite places in the country.
The mountains, the poplars, the weeping willows; the drive through the winding Manuka Gorge; the views as you drive alongside the Clyde Dam and Lake Dunstan; the hills dotted with vineyards; the fruit orchards; the ruins of gold miners’ huts.
We met up with friends for lunch at Carrick Winery; loving good food and good wine enjoyed with good friends! (Thanks so much for coming across to meet us, Em xxx)
We rode the gondola in Queenstown; loving tacky touristy photos!
Tall took Tiny on the luge; loving my hesitant boy’s bravery!
We ate divine French breakfasts at Bonjour; loving authentic French pastries and coffee!
We rode on the Kingston Flyer; loving being moved to happy tears upon seeing the excitement on Tiny’s face when he saw the train!
We had two sleeping boys on both the journey from and to Dunedin; loving the chance to talk to my husband uninterrupted!
Linking up with Meg and other loving lovelies
