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
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

Not too much happening today really Gav was very tired.
