It was around September this year that we started feeling that we really could use a proper holiday - not the kind where you're at home so you find all kinds of things to keep busy, but rather the kind where you go away somewhere and spend all day not being busy at all. We suggested the idea of joining the Gregorys and their annual crew in Nelson to the Gregorys (they planted the seed a year or two ago) and were met with the kind of enthusiasm which leaves no room for second thoughts. We got ourselves kitted out with a tent and various things we'd need (including bunting, because really, who wants to CAMP when you can GLAMP) and set off on the 27th December for a glorious 10 days away (which became two weeks because it was so goooood to be on holiday).
Finally arrived in Nelson late afternoon and got busy setting up camp. It took more than the first day to really get the site properly decorated, but when it was done I loved our temporary home!
