This month has been time to welcome Bec's parents over from the UK and introduce them to Central Otago where we have set up home. They have had a wonderful time during February including walking in the hills, lots of eating out and coffee and even trying lawn bowls and curling for the first time. Always good to try something new and they loved each and every new experience. 
In between trips to Queenstown, Lake Ohau, Mt Cook and plenty of time at home they even got to see some important games of bowls as this has been a bowls filled month with lots going on. I'm still amazed just how much this sport has taken over my life!
Somehow along the way I even managed to fit in the odd picture or two :-)

More wonderful landscape at Lake Tekapo.....and yes, courtesy of glacial water the lake really is that colour

Love a view like this, simple and classic

Cracking sunset over the hills around Lake Ohau

Ben and I enjoyed an amazing storm over the Lake Ohau into the early hours. Lighting strikes every few minutes for a few hours, what a great night of entertainment

The ever magnificent, majestic, Mt Cook

A view down the valley from Clyde in Central Otago. Always amazes me when this much water is so still.
