The photos show some of the nature sights where we stayed at Nelson Lakes for some days; helping friends to shift and looking after their place while they went away.
Kevin and I went sightseeing to Lake Rotoiti and the Mt Robert carpark, along with visiting a few old friends as we once lived at Nelson Lakes.
It’s winter and cold; we don’t run our heating at night so when we weren’t in the house enjoying the fire we had all our blankets out in force. But we got to experience those lovely winter frosts and clear blue days (usually), so it’s all good. Typical of winter at Nelson Lakes – decent frosts every morning that linger…we loved it, but it was also nice to reach Blenheim and get first-thing glorious sun on us when we woke in the morning.
After leaving to drive on to Blenheim, another friend Debra and I returned from there to pick up our car. She and I took another walk by the lake, in the frost which I’ve tried to reflect in the photos.
This post is quite record-like, but being in and around home we had a lot to do with friends around this time and I don’t want to breach anyone’s privacy! This blog is mainly a memory for Kevin and I of our journey over this year and the things we do and see and experience; and the things we forget tend to be places rather than people, hence my ever-focus on places and things, rather than people. Though our people are important to us!
