  • Description


    My husband and I are fortunate to live in a beautiful part of New Zealand
    The sun seems to shine more, the scenery is lovely and plenty of beaches and lakes to swim and kayak.
    We love to create, recycle and upcycle.
    At the moment we are creating an indoor water feature pond and garden.
    We have a good size vegetable garden that we eat from.
    Our love is the outdoors, cooking, creating things in the garden.
    We have a quad bike to ride and kayak to us.
    We are relaxed and enjoying meeting other people and listening to their adventures.
