Purakaunui falls.

Today, I was super inspired to blog. This is part two from the ANZAC day road trip. After we walked to the lighthouse we jumped back into the car and drove to the waterfall. After a short walk through the forest we arrived. The water was icy cold (which Jule can verify) and I took too many photos of the same things.

After a coffee stop and more time spent in the car we arrived at Slope Point, which turns out to be the southernmost point in the South Island. I was super annoying the whole time we were there, because guess who needed to use the bathroom and it just happened there wasn’t one to be found anywhere.

Nugget Point.

The weekend usually disappears before I even realise it. This becomes an issue when I have every intention to shoot/edit/blog photos. Also the fact that it is winter and everything is cold and rainy makes getting outside a little more unappealing (cups of coffee and Netflix is so much nicer). This is the main reason I am still posting photos that I literally took two months ago.

After attending the dawn parade on ANZAC day (I wasn’t joking about two months ago), JuleAntzMerr and myself jumped in the car and drove for a very long time. I have more photos to post at a later date.

Another Te Anau post.

The day started with a dip in the lake, a walk around a couple shops and a delicious meal. Then we jumped back in the car and started the drive back home. Which rounded off a pretty lovely weekend.

Te Anau.

Remember when I said I was going to Te Anau for the weekend? Well I finally got around to editing/posting half of those photos.

It was a flying visit for another friends birthday, but it was nice to spend some time by the lake with friends and the sun even made a brief appearance.

I have known these two people for a very long time, so it was nice to have a weekend with them. Plus we had delicious porridge so the weekend couldn’t get any better.¬†

Mount Cargill.

One afternoon (a while ago now), a couple of friends and I walked up Mount Cargill. And while it was very exhausting, it was also very fun. As soon as we got to the top the fog rolled over which was pretty incredible to watch. I may have fallen over on the way down, but it was worth it.

Sweet Children.

I’m forever taking millions of photos of these little kids. They have featured often on this blog and it is pretty incredible to be able to look back over the years and see how much they have grown. So of course I need to post updated photos.

Summer Dreaming.

As the days get darker, the more layers of clothing stack up, summer becomes a distant memory.

One evening I jumped in the car with my camera and headed to the beach to watch the sun disappear. There is something about the light evenings and the warm air.

This week has been cold and miserable. I’m missing summer already.
