today we hiked over a mountain to the most beautiful, remote & rugged shore.
near Jackson’s Bay, on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, we discovered wild blue ocean waves, foaming white as they crashed into the rocks stoically standing along the shore.
my husband has been teaching me to drone. he has a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom which is a marvel of machinery. it fares brilliantly in the windiest of conditions and takes epic photography and film footage.
Hello, sleep? this is Melly. I’m ready for you now!
I can barely keep my eyelids open as I write this. Hectic week… Jay was in Melbourne for work which meant keeping a house full of rolling guests (one lot departed as another arrived) entertained came down to me (thank God for the delights of Harley the born entertainer)!
Acting like big kids with Danny. My goofy favourite uncle!
Tuesday night we stayed til closing at the local Thai restaurant
drinking wine and talking.
Wednesday night we drank cocktails & shared sundaes with the sparkling city backdrop behind us…
I managed to get a couple of solid workouts in!
Reading love poetry & playing with a new filter…
Still so obsessed with salads;
rocket, apple, walnuts & feta
spinach, pumpkin, beetroot, lentils & feta
cocktails with colleagues
and a few more with friends
how can you not when your city shows off weather like this?!!
Jay’s home! Saturday date night; Dreams In White play in Darlinghurst.
And of course my little Harley boy…the fluffy love of our lives!
The last of our guests left this morning,
so now it’s time to do the washing & get back into our routine.
But first a little nap in the sun…
Let’s be friends!!!
