Farewell Christchurch

Well it’s once again time to say farewell to our second home, well Helen’s first home actually. The past ten days or so have been great, always good to catch up with family and friends.

Didn’t do as much sightseeing as in previous trips but did have a great day out in Waipara Valley looking at the vineyards and sampling the produce with Ava, Maria & Paul. Some great wines in the region, getting a new love for Pinot noir, I feel some shopping coming on when we get home…


Christmas with the family was great, the nieces and nephews just keep growing and growing. Hoping some day soon they’ll come and see us in Perth, just not all at once though. With the kids around it actually felt like Christmas for a change..

Caught up with friends we haven’t seen for ages as well for a night. Excellent just to sit and talk over some sensational beers and local wines. Thanks Tony & Gill for having us. Always a drink in the fridge for you when you next get to Perth.

Thanks Christchurch, see you again soon..
