We went into the Nevis this weekend. A bit of a family history trip really. My Great Grandad was raised in there. His adoptive mum and dad ran the Nevis Boarding House. We found out where it once stood - after we had passed the site, but we know for next time! Mum & Dad came up from the farm for the weekend and we enjoyed their company - even if they didn't like the pull out sofa much. We borrowed a 4WD from a friend of Jases and made our way in to Glenorchy (stopping at the cafe for a coffee) and then traveling through the Nevis. Jase drove us well - even though mum was worried we'd get stuck in there and she had her sleeping bag with her! Jase had even made our lunch and afternoon tea - Deluxe Bacon & Egg Pie and some Vanilla Custard Squares with lemon & coconut icing. Yum. There was lots to see and I wish I had my DSLR camera already to try to do justice to what we could see. We exited near Garston and made our way back home. Tired. Happy. Jase had a roast ready to just add the veges. It was delicious!
I downloaded a trial version of Light Room to edit my photos and enjoyed what I did with them but I did the above ones in Picasa - easy integration with Blogger :-)
