Back to the blog.

I've used my web pages as a platform to describe the events here in Taupo. I'm able to add photos and content much easier. Today I completed my last page. The Mastery of Gwen Marston Take a look you won't be disappointed. I'm also adding this small video of the young people who entertained us…

The blog.

Taupo Quilt Festival, the preparations.   We had a wonderful day yesterday. I took lots of vision and it can be seen at the link above. Right now its easier to add it to the web page rather than wait for the photos to load on the blog page. Take a look, I'm sure you…

Brie, quince paste, crackers, cappuccino, tomato soup and Dixit Dominus by Cozzolani through the earphones and I'm set for the next 3 hours before I get on the plane and retire for the night. I'm in a world of my own… its the way I like it when I travel. It my small bubble of…
