I haven't been here for a couple of years and I love it because it is so relaxing, you can truly get away from it all. no internet,. I think I have written about this amazing house before run by the CCS Disability Action.
They have a small number of these homes in NZ. They are amazing as everything is wheelchair friendly and don't have to worry about accessing everything.
It is called Bradley House and is located at the beautiful Paroa on the West Coast of the South Island, near Greymouth. We also had a very friendly Weka that visited us everyday!!
The first 3 days it rained which it usually does on the Coast! the first night we had it all, thunder lightning and hail for hours.. After that it was lovely and did some fun things like Gold Panning at Nelson Creek
The best was going on the Tree Top Walk15 min drive south of Hokitika. It was absolutely fantastic, was wheelchair accessible, so Josh could enjoy it too
. Now I don't like heights at all so I didn't look down but it was not too bad as you are just looking out onto the native trees which there is information on the walk.
Needless to say I didn't climb the Hokitia Tower 40 mtrs above the forest floor so i missed out views of the Southern Alps and the Tasman sea. Josh and I just chilled out looking on as the others climbed up. Poor Joels legs were trembling when he came down!!
Loved the driftwood art at the beach in Hokitika
While i was away my landlords decided to paint my unit so I stayed at Linds for another week so the kitchen could get done. There is still another couple of weeks more to go already it is feeling so light and spacious.
We also went out to Rabbit Island to take the kids biking. Josh took his trailer to gather pine cones, it was lovely, had a picnic too.
Well must rush, just off for a walk round the airport.
Back now and exhausted,....... we only did half of the course and came back took about 1 hour, out of practice!! lots of planes going in and out though, so always something to look at, the tide was in so it looked lovely must take pics next time
Catch you later perhaps with knitting news.
Have a good week all,
