Seeing is believing.This year has gone off with a hiss and a roar and it's only now we are actually starting to really feel the value in the things we have around us. Our little place we call home is constantly transforming and as this happens, we can't help ourselves from going along with it on this wonderful journey.
The Stationmasters Cottage has welcomed some great friends this year. We've had Sally, Kona and Sue up from Auckland, Justine and Mark from Christchurch and Peter and Anthony from Awhitu Peninsula as well as our close community friends. It's been lovely and it's been a crazy, long warm Summer.
Some brilliant memories of the year so far:
The remarkable Mr Kodak. Almost 18 years old...his eyes really do tell the story.
We painted our front door juicy orange and think it looks pretty cool...
Night time, deck finished and just loving the finished look.
4 little chicks I rescued form the Zoo car park, someone dumped them there
Day time view of house and surrounding hills..
Trouble 1 and 2. Murphy will often go lie beside Kodak...she loves her big bro!
This is Boy! he likes scratches and a 'lot' of attention..
Brooke's Bees are Booming....
Doggies in UTE headin for big walk up the mountain.
Their watching me open the gate
Finn and Murphy at the top O' the mountain...
Paddle boarding at Martins Bay...stunning
It's great when you come across a wee beach tucked away from everyone else
Tawharanui regional park
Relaxing at Martins bay on the board

My wee sister decided to finally follow her true passion as a brilliant creative artist and is now in her final year at uni. She sent us some of her latest work as a gift. These are created on lino..can you believe it.
