+ full. and exciting. and exhausting.
+ one that started early on friday with a visit to our new home by a sister and brother-in-law visiting from australia
+ a swim at palm beach with my sister
+ lunch at mudbrick vineyard for my brother-in-laws birthday
+ placing an order for locally made hot cross buns to collect pre-easter weekend
+ buying sola rosa tickets for easter weekends’s jazz festival
+ platter-style supper accompanied by local wine
+ locally made vanilla and salted caramel gelatos from the island gelato company
+ visiting the waiheke island roosters, then
+ goldie vineyard (our closest winery) for a glass of 2013 Syrah (their best vintage yet) bottled just over a week ago. we sat under an ancient pōhutukawa overlooking the bay enjoying the wine and the scenery
+ handsome sandwiches on fresh, locally made ciabatta
+ alfresco wine and cheese with a friend
+ followed by fish tacos, made with locally caught snapper from a shop on the island, topped with home-made avocado mousse & pineapple salsa
+ french toast with bacon & maple syrup as our sunday breakfast treat
+ more clearing, unpacking, sorting, tidying
+ cleaning the caravan in readiness for friends visiting next weekend
+ and vacuaming
+ wine and a platter for two at the man o’war vineyard in the bay of the same name
+ soft nougat filled with pistachio & turkish delight, found at a roadside stall on the way home from lunch
+ dreams and schemes
+ staring out into the trees and watching/listening to the local bird life
+ our first full weekend in our new home. me and my man agreeing that it doesn’t suck here. at all
