Just in case you have not had enough snaps of Taupo........

While waiting for Peter I took some more snaps of the lake.

And some of its inhabitants.

And more views. Ok, think I am finished now, you will be glad to hear.

Chilling, chilling, chilling and more chilling

An amazing view, don't you think. Wouldn't it be great to just spend the weekend sitting looking at it. That's exactly what I have been doing this weekend. Peter had to attend a conference in Taupo and some friends of ours lent us their holiday home for the weekend.
Above is the view from the bedroom, I could really get used to waking up to this every morning.
On the estate around the house there were lots of amazing walks down to the lake shore.
There was even a small friendly dog called Rusty to accompany us on our walk.
We meandered along the side of the lake.
Through the native trees.
With even more glimpses of the lake.

Peered into small caves.
Then sat in the evenings watching the sunset drinking a glass of wine.

All my stresses just flowed away, I was so relaxed.
So relaxed that while I was waiting for Peter to finish his conference, I sat in the bar of the hotel drinking wine and doing nothing. Two things I have never done. I have never ever gone into a bar by myself. And I never ever sit and do nothing. I was really impressed with myself that I could manage the sitting still and actually enjoy it.

Todays Daisy

Today's daisies, knitted daisies, have popped up on trees around Napier. A bit of knitting graffiti has been going on.
Even a knitted mermaid.
An alien looking piece of knitting.
And at the end of the street a welcome to any Canadians that are in Napier for the Rugby World Cup.

Wrong time

Opposite the building I work in one of the pohutukawa trees is in full bloom. The rest will probably not bloom till Christmas.

Todays Daisies - Enjoying Winter Sunshine

I really enjoyed the sunshine at lunchtime, so did the daisies, the butterflies and the bees.

Random Napier Windows

Some random Napier windows, just because.
