Here are two views of the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. This is where we were travelling earlier in the winter. We hiked to get both of these views, one in Mt Aoraki National Park and the other in Aspiring. I don't think if I hadn't broken my collarbone, we probably would have made it to either place because we would have been so busy cycling 100km a day. So in retrospect, although it hurt to get hurt, thanks to loving family friends and spending money for gasoline we were able to go to these two beautiful places.
So flash forward to current. We are still living in picture postcards!
We've been with Mark's parents in Salmon Arm watching spring arrive. Today I watched snow geese fly behind these trees. We've seen the swallows arrive, the grass green and ball players out in the baseball fields. And yes, it's the Stanley Cup playoffs, a sure indicator of Canadian spring.
