Bits from NZ

Fiona and I went to NZ for a few days to celebrate my birthday. It was a few days of art, nature and relaxation. Following are a few images from the trip away - not a lot of people photos.

We are back on the mountain; and doing a bit of catch up.


  1. Happy late birthday wishes Barry, lovely photos as usual. A place I would love to go (not NZ, been there but ? Island)

  2. Joyful belated wishes on your birthday Barry. What a wonderful way to celebrate: nature, art and being together exploring it all. Photo of big wooden heart quite apt to honor you on your day.
