Down South

We took a long planned trip down to Timaru on the weekend. Keryn finally got to meet Liam and also got reacquainted with my Aunty Helen who provided the transport between Christchurch and Timaru. We had a fairly chilled time hanging out with family, no stress or bother. I ended up providing willing entertainment for Keira though I realised today that my arms are sore from all the lifting and jumping performed in the name of fun.

Liam takes a rest.
Keira, not resting.
Climbing the web down the bay.
What makes me dizzy makes Keira reflective.

While playing at Grannies I also managed to get a few shots of lovely garden blooms and a few other little details.

A pink rose.
More roses.
Orange this time.
In the garage.
Preserves.
Tomatoes.

It wasn’t just the flora and Keira having their photos taken.

Crossword time.
Dad.

But there were plenty of Keira photos here as well.

Mostly patient with the photos.
Dancing around.
Inside with the toys.

Leaving Timaru with Helen I stopped us after crossing the Rakaia River and I headed back to the river to try and get some photos of the view we had seen while traversing the span. Dust from the riverbed had turned the horizon downriver into a white haze but the dust had gone by the time I arrived at the riverbank.

Beside the Rakaia.
Helen and Keryn.
Countryside.

Our next flight will take us to Australia for the Wedding of Roger and Kate, which reminds me that Keryn and I need to get new passports. Oh, and there are plenty more photos on the flickr, this link would be a good place to start.
