Holiday update #1

I am having a fabulous time relaxing here in Nelson. I flew down on Sunday afternoon after having some time with family in the spa. Here's a picture of that.

I arrived in Nelson to even better weather than at home - less wind and more heat. Just what I was after. I picked up a car from the airport (thanks to my friend for Victoria for that!) and headed straight to Mapua where I am staying. I found my little cabin, dumped my bags, stripped off and was on the beach - all within about 2 minutes! For those that don't know, the park where I am staying is clothing optional in February and March every year (my kids are now thinking....... ewwwwwww!) so it's wonderful to not bother about what you're going to wear and fantastic swimming! Here's a photo of the inside of my little cabin - it's very basic but right on the beach and perfect for me.

And here is the view out of the door - pretty darn close to the beach! :)


  1. Haha you put a picture of us!! Why?!

  2. What a beautiful spot to relax in, and not worry about keeping up with washing your clothes!

    Pamper yourself this week, dear KC, you so deserve it!

  3. Awesome, awesome, awesome I think as I pull my wool socks up a little higher...

  4. Your little cabin on the beach looks beautiful. I imagined you on your first morning waking up next to the water and wondering (lazily) "what do I feel like doing today" and having the whole day, and more to come, to yourself to do what you like with.

    It sure looks like a place you could revisit.

    Have a great time. Lots of love from the old Aussies ;)
