All unpacked, and still missing the warmth  :D

Going through and backing up all the camera memory cards, sorting and editing pics etc.

Watching the sunset with Lil at Blackrock.

Lil making out like she is a craft beer expert.

 

Enjoying some of their product at Sails Restaurant looking out over Muri beach.

 

Seafood platter for 2. Curried Octopus, grilled mussels, scallops, prawns, seared marlin steaks, ika mata (raw yellowfin tuna marinated in lemon and coconut cream) and some assorted stuff to fill in the gaps.

Still sorting through pictures.

But this is a little video clip from snorkelling in the lagoon in front of the house. Had to go out maybe 100m towards the reef where there was live coral in the lagoon. But no shortage of fish.

Ianab...spent 3 weeks in NZ. Fantastic Country.  Loved Christchurch, Rotorua and the boiling mud pit cooked dinners.

Cook Islands is technically another country, but it feels like a warmer and much more laid back version of NZ.  :D

Our next trip, which we have just booked is a Road Trip around the South Island. Pretty much all of it, in 3 weeks, over Christmas and New Year. I'll start a new thread when we hit the road for that one is it should have some pretty amazing pictures. Scenery around the South Island is some of the best in the world.

Sneak preview - this place it on your itinerary.
