:: getting up, above it all ::

Fennel flowers and Poverty Bay

Yesterday we were engulfed in a lashing of Wintry wind and rain and felt snug (and smug, until the powercut!) inside by our woodstove as we each worked away at our pursuits.

Stunning view
And today's trip to 'town' couldn't be more of a delightful contrast and as we picnicked above Poverty Bay, we talked of the different headlands we could see, stretching out South, pondering the forms of the landscape before us; Phoebe getting an aerial look at how far we need to drive to get to 'town'; Phoebe wondering whether there was a possible shortcut?; noticing the markers for the ships sailing into port and feeling really satisfied by a hearty soup we'd put into our flasks for lunch.

Fresh air, sunshine, nourishment and getting up above it all!
