Thanks giving..........

From the land of "Hobbits", bubbles and Jellyfish.......

We have spent the
 last two days in Wellington before an early sailing tomorrow back to the South Island.
It was the most beautiful sunny and warm day, which meant hanging out on the waterfront was just glorious! The morning started with a coffee and a shared blueberry muffin. Then a very relaxed two hours at Te Papa, next some big bubble watching, followed by spotting the huge amount of jellyfish in the harbor, they are quite memorizing as they glide like whispers of light in the water.

The capital put on a last hooray for the squirrels in the North Island, we have truly had the most wonderful time exploring this beautiful country. To see just how in incredibly lucky we are to have all this on our backyard has made a lot of the pain and hurt of the last two years just melt away.
 I think I have really understood the sense of being blessed and how incredibly thankful I am to have had this time with my best friend traveling in Basil.

Happy thanks giving!!!!!

Love V&W


  1. I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying your travels, & that Wellington turned on some nice weather for you. Warren looks so dapper in that waistcoat, & your frock is super sweet. Oh how I miss NZ lattes & muffins. Looking forward to seeing your South Island West coast adventures. Xx

  2. Warren in flip flops! Jon's jealous! How nice to get sunshine, you lucky Squirrels! xxx

  3. I am so glad your road trip has provided you with a sense of peace and contentment, Vanessa. You have both had some very hard times so you deserve to feel happier.
    You look beautiful, and Warren is quite the dapper fox! xxxx

  4. Ahh! you can't beat Wellington on a fine day! As soon as I saw the first photo of you I recognised the Boatshed where I was married 14 yrs ago. Making me nostalgic I must go back for a visit soon. S:)

  5. I'm such a sucker for views of Wellington; and the waterfront on a sunny day is just the best place to be isn't it :-)

  6. I'm so sad I missed you in my town:( Just bad timing this time round. There will be other though soon I hope - you really can't beat this place on a lovely sunny day!
