this is our last day in new zealand on what has been a magnificent adventure. we have spent time laughing with friends and family, revisiting treasured places and discovering some new favourites. i have so many photographs that i want to share with you that it’s been a bit of a challenge to pick out just a few. so i might have to share more with you over the coming weeks when i am back in the uk and missing my homeland.
i am grateful to my friends (new and old) for welcoming us into their homes, giving us places to stay, wine to drink, delicious food to eat, shared experiences. my heart is full to bursting with love for them all and thank-you (even said a trillion times) would never convey my gratitude.
hoping you are having some wild adventures of your own.
i am in love with the sun and we’ve seen some magnificent sunsets since being here.
this picture is for my new friend shawn cooper, who loves sunsets as much as i do (maybe more).

despite the incessant rain the whole way through the fly my pretties concert, the crowd was completely enthusiastic all the way to the end of the night
