Marlborough Sounds escape

A beautiful morning in Blenheim and we are sneaking about trying not to wake tired kids as we pack for the Sounds.  We have decided to see the end of 2008 at my parents bach in Yncyca Bay in the Pelorus Sounds.   Do call in if you are

out in the Sounds – pull up at the first jetty after Turn Point in Yncyca Bay.



Thanks to many of you who sent Christmas wishes – we had a lovely Chrissy with family.   I did run a competition on our facebook page offering a free bottle of wine for the first “Merry Christmas” posted with a ‘fiasco’ of responses.  Some posted here (Dale Campbell was first), some posted on our facebook fiasco fan page (Ngaire Lawson was first), some posted on our facebook fiasco group (Lizzie Graham was first) and some posted me an e-mail (Sarah Burton was first).  Sooooo, looks like we have more than one bottle to give away!  (Mental note to self- take a bit more care with instructions next time 😉 ) I will get on to that as soon as we are back from the Sounds…assuming we have some wine left after New Years celebrations 🙂  As for the competition to get a bargain case of 12 for $90, Jules is currently winning with a cracker of a story under the “COME ON WE DARE YOU” post!

In Jan we head for the North Island, and are having about a week exploring Auckland.  So all you Aucklanders, we would really appreciate your top ten things to do in Auckland…
