New Zealand, Pt 1

So here's the story.

P and I agreed to exchange gifts on the wedding night. The agreement was that the present would be [a] Inexpensive, and [b] More Sentimental Than Practical. So after all the festivities, I gave him a pocket knife with a whole "through it all, no matter what, I'll be there for you" spiel... Cheesy but I honestly couldn't actually think of anything better. (And true, I broke Rule B since a pocket knife is actually very practical.)

P whips out a photo album, with a picture that we'd taken together on the cover, and our favorite engagement picture on the inside cover, along with a beautiful note written inside about how we would fill the album with memories, etc. etc... All beautiful and romantic, and I absolutely loved it...

And then he jumps up and says "But to make the most of this, you'll probably like this too..." reaches into another bag and hands me a brand new Canon 30D, digital SLR camera, at which point I start blubbering...

So yes. We are now the proud owners of a great new D-SLR, even though P broke the rule and made my present look hideously inadequate!! *sigh*

Anyway... here are a few snapshots from New Zealand, taken on our lovely new baby.

Black swans in a marshy area on the coast on the way to Dunedin

A little pier on the way to Portobello on the Otago Peninsula.

On the road to Queenstown from Dunedin.

Our little Toyota Yaris, parked where I was taking the following picture...

The view of the coast in the Brighton/Ocean View area. Our little beach house is somewhere down................ there!
