First of all, thousand apologies for such a long delay in posting.. Being busy, might be just an excuses, kinda neglect the blog for a little while. Laziness to be blamed :S
Euan's house, with a little patriotic touch of Malaysian flag! Thanks Euan!
After the flight with Sounds Aero, i visited another customer of mine, Euan Macdonald and his wife in Picton. They are such a wonderful and friendly couple. Our plan of the day was to have lunch at their place and then head to the Marlborough Sounds with his boat/yacht called Taranui.
So here they are, from left, Euan & Gillian MacDonald, and their neighbour.
As we leaving Waikawa Bay, we pass by a huge yacht belongs to a Russian guy who tour around the world. Rumours said, he was a Russian mafia. Hahaha..
We visited several bays around the Sounds, and this particular bay is famous for the fishes here. The fishes here are accustomed to be fed by humans, and they know when boats arrived.
After feeding the fishes, we head to Lochmara Lodge. One of the best place to hang out and have coffee or tea.
You can canoe here, swimming, all sorts of water activities here. Great for family outing!
As you walk in, there's a big green gecko greets you :P
The cafe and bar of Lochmara Lodge
The deco here is pretty creative, and i kinda like the way they recycle computer parts and turn into this!
Besides the 'gecko', there's also Indian Ringneck Parakeet who meet and greet everyone there. Cheeky little bird.
and kinda naughty too!
Besides having coffee, there's a short walks around the lodge. It cost about $8 per entry, worth it as the money goes into conservation, especially for these highly endangered Nautilus geckos.
It was a really great day out with them.. had fun, relax on the wonderful cruise around the Sounds. This is how i want to spend my day off! :)
Thank you for reading, will update soon, with photos from Havelock Mussel Festival 2013!
