Another stunning Marlborough Day and a chance to see it from on high. We headed up the Whither Hills for a walk and some lunch.
Day 5 of my thankfulness challenge (already!) Today's list of things that have blown my socks off with beauty and thankfulness:
- The wicked playground that is the South Island. I love this place - how could you not love these hills? Really wonderful to get up and amongst them
- Light. A little word which combined with draped, folded landscapes has the ability to stop me in my tracks and take my breath away. Which was sometimes unfortunate given I was already sucking air in like an emphysema sufferer just getting up this hill in the first place. (Note to self: do something about that)
- Wine country (in this case Blenheim) that makes lots of good drops such as Cloudy Bay Pelorus. Good and delicious things formed from what grows in the earth - yum!
Quote from on top of the hill, 'This is a good life.'
