High on the Hills of Little old Le Bons Bay(sounds like that song from the sound of music!!!)

Today we took a walk up to a beautiful part of Le Bons Bay that has just recently been purchased by a conservation trust and is to be shut up as a reserve,and eventually it will be able to be enjoyed by groups and families...My partner John is doing some of the maintainence on the hut and some work clearing tracks and also some predator trapping, so the reason we went up today was to check the traps..the kids had fun playing in the cabin as well as outside in the wind!!! We did a bit of a spring clean in the hut and also sat and read the Saturday paper while the kids were busy, there is a loo(for the busting children) and also running water in the hut and a gas cooker so the kettle can be boiled for a cuppa tea!!
The kids had a blast and when we said it was time to come home they all went oooooo do we have to!!!
I can see a few weekends being spent up there...but I ain't staying up there till I know theres no rats or mice in the hut(there was plenty of evidence thats for sure),we have put traps up there today so hope we get rid of them...We hope to spend more time up there as time goes by and will be a great place for a group to go and for a tent or two around the hut.... just need to get the generator going again and we will be sussed!!!


  1. Oh my giddy aunt- you live in Le Bon's Bay - my favourite place in New Zealand - we had a trip down to the south island over the Easter holidays and we were blown away by the beauty of Le Bon's Bay - it is utterly divine. We wondered who the lucky people were who got to live there. Take care!!!

  2. What a beautiful place to live! Your pictures are amazing.

  3. Thanks for the lovely comments!!! Most days I do feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful place
