Towards Mt. Arthur, seen from the golf course. We can see these mountains from our bedroom windows and (a glimpse) from the lounge.
Same spot on the golf course (Waimea inlet), but now facing North East. Turning 180 degrees and you'll get the view with Mt. Arthur.
We've had heaps of rain lately - I think that most of the country has been flooded in the last couple of weeks. First there was a severe drought at the end of summer, then suddenly the floodgates opened and rain never stopped, which got cars bobbing in the streets in Wellington, and then suddenly the temperature plummets and .... the first snow of the season arrives!
But Nelson wouldn't be Nelson without its great climate, and luckily for us, where others again had to wear their raincoats today, we basked in the sun, did a lot of gardening (leafs, leafs, and more leafs), played golf, played tennis, and managed open homes. The loveliest thing was to open the curtains this morning, as we knew we would be able to see the snowcapped mountains around us. We couldn't see them yesterday, because of an overcast day, but this morning all was crisp and clear - and just 2 degrees!! Brrr. But with our new heaters (we bought a couple more) and lots of sunshine (eventually we had 15 degrees today) it got nice and toasty inside.
