Almost Altogether

The unbelievably beautiful NZ winter weather continues as M moves further south to the top of the South Island of NZ to Nelson.

With the exception of J who continues to travel for business, M’s immediate family – mother, father, 2 brothers, respective partners and nephew - is together to celebrate little bro’s 30th birthday.

We’re staying at Te Puna Wai Lodge which is owned by M’s other brother and his partner. Te Puna Wai is a stunning property nestled on Nelson’s Port Hills and overlooks the picturesque Tasman Bay. The view is a constant source of entertainment with the changing light and various vessels sailing to and fro.

One of the biggest pleasures for M has been to make the acquaintance of her 1 year old nephew whom she last saw as a 6 week old baby in San Francisco in June 2005. He is a joy to have in the family and is blessed with intelligence and good looks! This is one special kid for all of us!

Seabee - thanks! It's easy when the scenery is so stunning.

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira - anyone who brings cake is VERY welcome! lol Thanks for the wishes - I am having a great time with my family.

Jin - are you match-making Chikkin and my nephew already? :-)

Moryarti - I put the images into Photoshop mainly to adjust density and contrast, add the borders and the copyright tag. That's all - the rest is up to Mother Nature!

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

I'm so envious. Having to look at the lines of vehicles on the SZR everyday does not compare. :)
