It feels like it was a while ago now but the weekend before last my sisters, mother and I ran away down the island to celebrate my grandmothers 70th birthday. We drove down to Otaki and then on to Palliser Bay where we’d rented a house with my aunts and uncles. The house itself turned out to be on the other side of Lake Wairarapa but we all jumped into cars and made a mission to go check out the seals, the light house and the local pub. As you can see from the photos above it was a pretty breath taking environment. The first photos are from this small fishing village, the tractors are used to take the boats down to the water and they all had quite individual names. There was a weird sense of humor along that coast with lots of odd signs. We drove on to the lighthouse and missioned it up. Mission being the operative word. Then we drove back to the pub where we had fish and chips and looked out across at the vast openness. It was pretty spectacular. (Oh and seals on the side of the road? I just, I still can’t comprehend that that was real.)

  1. How lovely. Reminds me of where I grew up in Nova Scotia minus the seals. Nice pics.
