Well, it is New Years Day here in New Zealand, and the temperature is around 20c with mostly cloudy sky's... not really the Christmas/New Years we grew up with...
We are thrilled to have our youngest daughter, Kelly with us and her life-long friend, Kristina here with us. They arrived a day late, but we have had a great time so far...
On Christmas Eve we attended a cruisers pot luck last night and enjoyed meeting a bunch of people we had seen around, but hadn't got to know...
|Food and presents.... who could ask for more....|
As soon as the girls arrived Shelley organized their great New Zealand Adventure...
On Boxing Day we celebrated Christmas with the girls and our friend, Tom. Shelley made a full on Christmas dinner, complete with turkey and all the trimmings...
|Shelley's favorite souvenir....|
|Our new mat for the boat!|
|First in line for the tour!|
|Look... the girls are the same size as Hobbits!|
|Look! We all fit!|
|Yes, it was COLD!|
|Shelley pointing to "MOUNT DOOM"|
|Some incredible beauty!|
|The girls hiked almost 20 kilometers over the volcano!|
They don't mess around here in NZ... Almost all roads outside city/town limits are 100kph (65mph)!
|They may be 20, but not yet "all grown up!"|
