We had probably the busiest year we will ever have in 2018.Late February we spent a weekend in Auckland

to celebrate the engagement of

our eldest son to his bride to be.

 

In June we were blessed with falling snow while

visiting the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Most of us had not seen falling snow ever,

so a real delight.

A week or so later while cruising the Inside Passage

during  our stop at Juneau we flew

onto the Mendenhall Glacier to visit the huskies

and have a rife in a sled.

Another highlight.

 

 

  

We hardly seemed to be home

before preparations needed…

to be made for our road trip in New Zealand

prior to our son’s wedding.

A Māori Hāngī at the

Whakarewarewa Māori Village in Rotorua…

 

…and a visit to the Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

 

…were preludes to the big day.

 

 

The next morning back at

Auckland International Airport

for our flight home.

A drive along Lake Taupo will find many side roads… 

which may, or may not, lead to a jetty like this.

In both cases here, the short side road

and the jetty stymied me from

driving or walking any further.

Stymie was one of my Father’s favourite words.

Under a bridge…

…aboard the Rocky Mountaineer.

Auckland Harbour Bridge.

 

Another New Zealand bridge we found.

Sunrise under Melbourne’s

West Gate Bridge

late August 2018.

A bridge in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. 

See the sign on the right?

Our guide obeyed the sign when we crossed.
