I want to apologize to all of you that have been checking my blog...I've had internet access twice now and both times wasn't able to finish my post - we were in the Brisbane Airport waiting for our flight to NZ and I was just about to post when we heard the final boarding call for our flight...luckily we just made it in time. The B&B we are at today in Haast (West Coast of the South Island of NZ) has access and I spent some time early this morning writing this long post and then I made the mistake of trying to use spell check...something went wrong and it wound up crasing the system and my post was lost. Now we are off and most likely I won't have access again until we get home on the 7th.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of the photos I've taken on a big monitor - so far I've taken over 50 GB of photos and we still have a week left...I have such great memories of living in NZ fifteen years ago, but had forgotten how truly spectacular the scenery is - if you ever get a chance to visit this beautiful country be sure to take it. This morning the kids and I got up before sunrise and went on a little hike out to the coast so I could take some photos - the colors in the sky are so bright and the air is so clear, I'm looking forward to seeing these enlarged - it was very cold though - I think we've finally reached winter.
Check back in a few weeks and I will try to put together a photo album of my favorite photos from the trip.
Have a happy July 4th!
