  1. Glad you did! Bet it was lovely πŸ™‚ Think its wine o’clock here… right now πŸ™‚
    Gorgeous pics Julie.. and particularly <3 the photo of the vineyard looking up to the mountains. 188. Breathtaking.
    Looks like you enjoyed yourself. So lovely to share your trip and the stunning scenery.

  2. Of course you did! I should hope. πŸ™‚ Stunning scenery. Thanks so much for sharing. It looks rather like our state of Montana with but with vineyards. Cool and beautiful, I’m guessing that’s kind of a new Zealand thing. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m delighted to be able to join you on that trip, Julie! So many familiar places…we’ve been to the South Island as well and spent a week in Central Otago from where we flew around…Millford Sound, all the mountains, Stewart Island…it was just heavenly! Not only the wine but also scenery, wildlife…bliss πŸ™‚
