Just wish I had a decent camera
My trip was to the top of the South Island - absolutely stunning mountain ranges, fjords, cafes and pubs.
For me, getting there was half the fun and my wife allowed me to dress pretty and even dropped me at the airport on her way to work.
First stop, the stunning town of Picton in the Queen Charlotte sounds, where our Inter Island ferry stops. I found a bar that served my favorite food - Date pudding
I visited the town of Nelson.
I used to visit here often as a teenager (they had a girls boarding school back then, made the trip worth while).
Today was just a coffee stop at McDonalds - as usual, followed by a visit to the cathedral where 4 priests were being ordained. I really just wanted photos of the architecture but stayed for the ceremony.
Of course I had to try on a pair of boots like my daughter thought would look nice, then another and another.
35 minutes later and still not finding anything I like I decided to leave the shop and head to Founders Museum.
Found some stunning old style corsets that they make and sell on site, what type of cross dresser doesn't fancy a lovely, tight corset?
I had to play at the old dentist shop
And like all good museum - there's a train ride (sorry, not steam, but an early diesel)
Latter that evening, I got dressed for a lovely dinner in Blenheim ( the wine capital of New Zealand) "The Good Home" bar and restaurant where I had a fantastic Yorkshire pudding, a traditional English main course.
The next morning, I was saddened when I had to say goodbye to the fabulous couple I was staying with but not before having a fun shopping trip and a relaxing coffee with them.
They have a lovely home and a fantastic garden and made me feel like one of the family.
Every evening and mornings we chatted, all the while with me wearing my floral pyjama pants, bra and top.
I've a hundred more photos of the trip, these are a few of the better ones.
Just a fantastic trip and I wish you were here to share it (and some of the wine tasting) with me.
