It's about time this blog was updated for this year!!

Jeff and I spent 23 February till 19 March 2009 holidaying on Old Forest. This year Pauline & Gae visited - sadly the weather for their visit was terrible - cold, windy and wet - but then it is the West Coast of New Zealand.
We arrived to find that there had been a massive storm during the 2008 winter and many trees were down including some ancient rimu ....and our caravan lifted and reshaped a little!!

Pauline and Gae arrived.
We met them at Westport then visited Denniston
on our way up to Seddonville
where they stayed two nights in the old
school camp.

So much beauty in spite of all the storm damage
