Sue, being pretty much the most organised person I have ever known arranged for a "Wellington Bach" (bach being North Island NZ speak for holiday home) for us Wellington folk to stay in - plus our friends Alaina and Boggy from Melbourne. It was a pretty fancy bach - pretty fancy indeed.
Also we had wonderful sunsets like this one.
Unfortunately, there was hurricane forecast for the day of Sue and Conors wedding and they day before the wedding, the skies began to get a little darker.
Then the day of the wedding the hurricane really set in (Hurricane Lusi for those who want to know its name) and our friends couldn't have their wedding one the beach as planned. The wedding was still beautiful, just held at the local golf club instead.
After the storm, we headed down to check out the beach. It had taken a bit of a hammering from the cyclone.
However, the day after the wedding the storm was all gone and the beach was beautiful again - Murphy's Law right?
So that was our mini break, it was pretty much the best. I'm so looking forward to us all getting together again for New Years. In the meantime, I'm going to listen to the rain outside and try and remember what sunshine looks like! Have a wonderful week xoxo
