Knitting beanies and gloves

Fingerless gloves great for keeping my hands warm but I can still use my phone and iPad. Also made a beanie. Busy adding a scarf to the set. Love this Lion brand yarn. Made my daughter a set too.

They have a variety of different colours to choose from too.


New Zealand South Island Camping Trip

Catching the ferry From Wellington to Picton 31/2 hr journey. We upgraded to the premium lounge where we had food and drinks laid on.

Found this campsite by accident – lakeside campsite with a beautiful waterside campsite perfect place to cool off. This is just before Murchison. https://riversidemurchison.co.nz/

Just after Murchison we came upon this swing bridge
We love the West Coast it’s so rugged. Lots of one vehicle bridges but the views and crystal clear waters certainly make up for the winding roads. Allow time and to stop and enjoy the small towns along the way.


Full of quaint shops. Haven’t seen so many old dolls in a shop before. 

After a dip in the Franz Joseph hot pools we spent the night in the top 10 campsite and woke up to this view. https://top10.co.nz/park/franz-josef-top-10-holiday-park
