    1. Hi Bob, Thanks for your message and pleased you like them. You have a great collection of outdoor shots too…we live in a beautiful country don’t we.


  2. Hi Murray,
    We are considering doing a tour round the South Island to include a couple of hiking routes (in partic really like the look of a Abel Tasman route and The Hooker Valley Track) but may only be able to travel in August. Do you think it is feasible in Winter? We have 2 kids who are use to walking but do you think this would be a stretch in Winter?
