Happy New Year friends. It’s a while since I’ve blogged but I have been busy! I spent Christmas in New Zealand with my family, and started a new job after I got back.
I thought I would share a few pictures of my time in the sun.
I caught up with an old friend of mine who was back from Japan for Christmas. We went to Hanmer Springs, walked to a waterfall and then soaked in the thermal pools.
Ate Kaikoura crayfish (rock lobster).
You buy them in a little shack on the side of the road. Nin’s Bin is the best-known crayfish shack.
Side-of-the-road cherries. Cherries are obligatory at Christmas time.
Trying out my new oyster knife on the beach. It’s the best way to have oysters – you throw the shells back in so new oysters can grow on them. Lemons grow in abundance in the Sounds – the climate is Mediterranean. The oysters are Pacific oysters and taste incredible. At low tide you can eat your fill.
