In the absence of current travel options, this is a rework of our 2014 trip Down Under, previously posted on a private blog site.
Christmas Day dawned bright and sunny. The coffee was ready, so as the ladies prepared breakfast, P and I sat outside on the deck with our coffee. Unbeknownst to us, we were being watched. It was already +22 C and sunny, so coffee on the deck in shirt sleeves on December 25th seemed like the thing to do.
We were soon called in to a delicious breakfast of Mimosas and special stuffed French toast.
As the day progressed, the aroma of roast turkey filled the house as our Christmas dinner was to be roast turkey with all the trimmings. M and P’s friends A and J came over with dog Ziggy and we had a great afternoon followed by a fabulous supper, complete with Plum Pudding (the darn match kept going out) and Trifle. Way too much good food (just like Canada).
So, here is our Merry Christmas wish to all of Ewe from the Goulds in New Zealand, given our Christmas Day will be over, by the time yours starts.
Here, it looks like just another sunny summer and +28 day.
PS: What do you think of my Kiwi Santa socks (bought in Hokitika)?
