A Trip to the Museum :)

There isn't a huge list of adventures we need to have before leaving our Small City next Monday...most of the adventures involve spending some time with the gorgeously wonderful friends we've made over our six years here. However, taking Jarvis to the museum was something we've wanted to do for ages, and finally got to yesterday!

Our museum has part of a huge ship stuck onto the side...after a shipwreck in 1912, a local jeweller decided he rather fancied it, and took the Wheel House home! He used it as an addition to his house, then it was left to the public in 1983, when it eventually became part of the museum. 

Jarvis told us he was driving the boat to our new home across the sea :)

Today our busy weekend continues...a few more special friends to spend some time with. I've worked out that the thing I'll miss the most about being here is the fantastic people we've met & befriended...and fortunately I know from experience that wonderful friends are still wonderful friends, despite where you live. And now we've just given them an awesome excuse to head to the mainland for a holiday!


  1. All the best for your move to the top of the south! I love the whole Marlborough/Nelson region and have often wished we could move there... but hubbie's tech business is in Welly.

    Enjoy the wonderful sunshine, fresh air and serene beauty and good food and wine :)

  2. Hi Kath + family!
    Hope all is well! Since I didn't see you and Jarvis on Wednesday I just thought I'd drop you a line... Best wishes for you all! Take care! x
