Daily Photo – Breakfast in Abel Tasman
We got up early and went to go in search of a restaurant for breakfast and ended up about 15 minutes down the road at Onetahuti. It was Mother’s Day, and we were the only ones there without a mother… I mean, we have mothers, but you know what I mean. Afterwards, we took a little stroll on this beautiful beach!
Daily Photo – Skinny Dipping on the way to Mount Cook/Aoraki
Do you think this lake full of glacial water is cold? Yes? Well, you’re right. I am not a fan of cold water and all my friends that love cold water tell me I am a crazy for not liking cold water as then dive into it naked. I’m like no. I like hot water. I like jacuzzis and stuff. It’s not that complicated but I just can’t get it through their heads.
Daily Photo – Over Abel Tasman
I’ve lived here in NZ for quite a while and I’ve never even been to Abel Tasman until just a few weeks ago. I did a mega road trip up there and stopped to pick up my bestie Rene in Nelson. We had a great time up there, but we didn’t spend nearly enough time. Every evening had a lovely sunset and the light was amazing. I got the drone up a few times and here is one of my faves!
Daily Photo – Drone or Helicopter?
Well this was a pretty good set of choices I had! I saw this really cool gap in this seaside structure on the West Coast of the South Island as we were approaching with the helicopter. We ended up landing on the beach, and I was thinking about launching my quad to get a photo. But then I thought, why would I use my quad? I have a helicopter for the day! So after we took off, I told my pilot friend exactly where to go. Decisions, decisions, I know.
Daily Photo – More Trip Planning
This image is from my last trip to the US, or maybe it was the 2nd last… either way it’s been a while since I was there. I’m now in the process of booking the flights so it’s all systems go prep wise. Given that I am heading back to see the family in Texas in July, I expect the conditions to be a touch warmer than they were in this image!
Daily Photo – 50th party blowout bash!
When I turned 50, I had quite the party. And my friend Luke from Luma came out to decorate the whole thing with lights. How cool is this? I asked him if he could just leave it. Please leave it! Anyway, the party got a little loose. I knew there were two groups of people. The drinkers and the drug-takers. I was in the latter. Overall it split about 50/50. All the drunk people stayed at the main house and the most awesome people ended up out in the cabin. 😉 Twas epic!
