A few days away.

unnamed We are home after a wonderful week away on a remote farm in Golden Bay. It was touch & go for a while there whether we would actually make it thanks to the tail end of the cyclone that hit Australia.

unnamed It took us two and a half days to finally reach our destination with two thwarted attempts thanks to high winds, severe flooding & fallen trees … but we got there in the end & found a magical spot to enjoy a few days with family.

Mr Boiled Egg & Soldiers & I found ourselves in a simply gorgeous, rustic chalet for two.

unnamed Rather like a ship’s cabin, with stunning views & a clawfoot bath, I was in my element!


unnamed Between the rain storms we hung out at the beach & built fires.

My clever niece & nephew caught fresh salmon which was quickly smoked….

unnamed ….. & demolished!

unnamed And now we are home again & it feels like winter might finally be here.

unnamed Cottage pie for dinner tonight by the fire.
