Oh no holiday snaps..... Larnach Castle

I have been a bit slow doing my New Zealand holiday posts but I've had a nasty sinus infection since I arrived home, the antibiotics are now kicking in so I'm on the mend.

Our visit to Larnach Castle in Dunedin...... what a wonderful place to see.

Here are a few of my favourite photos.... 


Beautiful gardens.






This is the ballroom which is now the cafe and function room.


What a lovely room to enjoy a little stitching with friends.





Now this is a cafe.....



Yes it was yummie....



Beautiful scenery on the way back to Dunedin.


We had dinner in a lovely Reef and Beef restaurant..... 
being such a daring couple we both had chicken......lol
Gavan was looking forward to this beer....



This was my dessert tonight.


Well I think that might be enough for today, more tomorrow I hope.

Day 1 of my NZ craft shop hunt......

My first craft shop stop in New Zealand was "Cottonfields Quilting Quarters".....

I was telling them it was my first stop and they giggled and said " it is the no. 1 shop" so I knew I was in the right place.
Naturally they let me take a photo


Followed by a little purchase


Breakfast was very good this morning


Followed by a bit of sight seeing
Akaroa


Not too much happening today really Gav was very tired.
