Westcoast Wandering........











Hello Sweet-peas from the wild and rugged west coast of NZ!!!!


Yesterday was the most gorgeous sunny and hot day, the squirrels meandered down the coast, stopping at a beautiful bay for sandwiches on the beach. 
I have really enjoyed get back to taking photographs on this trip, its been such a long time. It was such a huge part of my life for so many years the reconnection has rekindled a passion I had lost when we had the shops.
Up early this morning in the pouring rain we travelled 5 mins up the road at Punakaiki to the famous "Pancake Rocks". These amazing coastal rock formations are quite incredible to see and the blow holes where putting on a great display.
Then it was off to Greymouth for a little op-shopping, found a cute wee jacket and a polka dot skirt,  not a polka dot skirt I hear you all say!


Then it was the big drive down the stunning bush lined roads in the rain, sooooo Westcoast.!!!!! It was just amazing. Tonight the squirrels are staying the night in Franz Josef, off to see a Glacier tomorrow.


Love V&W

  5. How beautiful, I love it there! Last time we went (a few years ago) it was so stormy though that we had to cling onto the railing so that we wouldn't get blown over the edge. Very fun but a little bit scary!
