Post Holiday Pics

A Few Pics Not Worthy Of A Separate Blog
But Still Worthwhile

These are the views that would have welcomed the early settlers to this part of New Zealand in the early 1800s and this lovely life sized memorial to them stands on the quay.

Some early settlers small wooden houses still standing in South Street, Nelson, all still occupied.

The native flora and fauna, which can be seen throughout this beautiful sunny region.

An early grand settlers house now used for lunches and gracious afternoon teas.

A selection of things sold in the Saturday Market - many people earn their living by arts and crafts and farming and the weekly markets are thriving and full of beautiful hand-made goods.

And last, but not least, the area is well known for its profusion of vineyards and the marvellous wines of New Zealand. These photos are from the very famous and wonderful  Neudorf Vineyard,  where The Finn's pioneered winemaking in the region during the 1970s, where they are now producing world class wines.

I do hope that you have enjoyed my trip to this region just as much as I have. I promise not to bore you again with a mention of it (or any more of my photos)! Now to get back to crafting!
