Heading over to Greymouth in the morning on the Tranz Alpine, with the old girls and partner.
Weather is meant to be 100% poo
Gale nor-westers in chc , which can only mean rain for the coast ... ahh well.
Having a night in Greymouth, and the train home again on Saturday.
Next week ( 20th and 21st) I'm driving them (just the three of us ...mumble wants to stay home ) down to Tekapo for 2 nights.
Day one will be CHC, Tekapo, Mt Cook, Tekapo .... next day Tekapo, CHC .
Then, in about 6 or 7 days, the mum in law jumps on a 787 and heads back to the land of the rising sun.
I have to be honest, she has been a treat ..... very, very limited English, but we have had a ball.
It's nice to see my partner with her mother, there was a little history there, that seems to have been fixed ... that's good.
And of course, the old dear is very impressed that her daughter has hooked up with a brain surgeon......
