Getting all ready…

I am feeling READY for our coming holiday…

today i booked our en route accomodation… a night in a cabin in Kaikoura, which has to be one on my favourite places in the world.  Summer holidays used to always begin with a few nights in Goose Bay, fishing off the rocks, swimming in the rock pools, walking through the old railway tunnel to a surf beach, collecting paua shells (with or without their paua), bashing paua to make patties, visiting uncles with snorkling gear and therefore butterfish and crays to share, walks to the icecream shop, hearing the trains in the night…

we won’t manage all those things on our one night, but i shall breath the air, collect some shells, no doubt hear a train or two rumble through and will be part way to our real holiday destination in the Sounds…

yay.  can’t wait 🙂
