Home sweet Home

There is no feeling like coming home!  We arrived in Auckland on Wednesday and spent a couple of days up in Northland with our friends Bert and Becky and family who run an organic egg and pig farm.  The scenery couldn't have more different from Singapore!  Rolling green hills everywhere you look and fresh air!  Simply Beautiful!
It was great to see them again and we even got to feed the chickens and the pigs.  What can I say but the pigs really lived up to their name!

We slowly meandered our way down country (after buying some chicken flavoured chips yum yum) and arrived in Wellington yesterday. The view on the desert road was stunning as there was plenty of snow on the mountains. (Mt Ruapehu)

 Our nephew came to see us just after we arrived which was nice.  We are all looking forward to catching up with friends and family.

This morning we drove in to Wellington and drove around the bays from Island Bay to Brooklyn.  There was not a cloud in the sky and you could see all the way to the Kaikoura ranges on the South Island.

What can I say but Ahhhhh! its nice to be home!
