In Them 'Thar Hills.. by maggiemae

In Them 'Thar Hills..

First day out in the caravan and we let her (Cara -Vanski) have her head! She decided to stay in a nice parking spot by an old historic pub. The view here is looking at distant mountains over a green valley!

Three Good Things:
1. Plenty of exercise packing the van
2. Sun and very little wind made the journey very pleasant
3. The apricots on the tree next to the van are not ripe - the good thing is that we will be going to a place where they are ripe!
WOW!!! so adorable view!!!!

Great view to have. You lucky to find apricots still on the tree. Ours are all done and dusted, all the apricot trees have no more fruit left on them

Stunning view and by an historic pub as well, what more could you ask for!

@judithdeacon The historic pub has spiderwebs all over it, Judith! Could benefit with a steam clean! But a tremendous history with teams of horses that would pull up!

@janemartin Its luxury camping, Jane - hot water, oven, TV, stereo, toilet - and yes, what more could you ask!

@happypat Those mountains were so far away but I used my zoom and a post to stabilise the camera!

I had forgotten Cara's name and was going to ask the other day but forgot to ask too! Gracious ould age is stealing so much from me!
spectacular picture of your surroundings

@grammyn The last bit of her name - 'ski' is 'spending kids' inheritance' Katy!
January 21st, 2017  
Great shot - but I truly love the name of your caravan!! Go for it!
January 21st, 2017  
Amazing lighting you have captured here. Your caravan escapades are so interesting. You are seeing and sharing so many hidden treasures in NZ. Makes me want to see more of NZ too. Enjoy 'ski'
January 21st, 2017  
wonderful scene and shot. Love the layers. You are so lucky
January 21st, 2017  
VML this shot; the layers are superb. Like even more the 'ski' term and am in full support of such an initiative.
January 21st, 2017  
I'm with you on ski holidays, as long as there's no skiing involved!
January 21st, 2017  
@inthecloud5 Have to agree with you Christine - no broken bones for me!

Beautiful shot. Hills look very dry. Where abouts is this?

@delwynforsythe Its a place called Becks which is on the way from the east coast of the South Island in NZ to the Central Otago area.
