Mum and Dad have a great little place in Portage in the Malborough Sounds. We went for 6 nights and had a fantastic time. We spent heaps of time swimming. We also went for walks on the Queen Charlotte Sounds, kayaking,, looking for fish off the wharf, and exploring different beaches and bays. The kids spent a lot of time rolling down the hill outside the house and playing with neighbouring kids. Highlights included PJ the cat (for Eben and Abel- the rest of us less keen on this noisy meower!), the fishing competition BBQ (the kids were given fizzy drink, chocolate fish, there was a lolly scramble and a bunch of kids to play with), the tennis ball races on New Years Eve and going on the ski biscuit behind a neighbours boat. Wonderful time, looking forward to the next visit!
This first one should actually be in the Nelson post.
Poor Eben got bitten by mosquitoes and his face swelled up. Then the following day he cut his foot on an oyster shell. Isla wanted seaweed braided into her hair.
