Playing opposite seasons is rather fun isn’t it? Well, despite wearing an incredibly summery outfit, with an Autumn-y backdrop, it is actually winter here in New Zealand. Quite luckily the sun decided to say hello, which seems awfully appropriate due to the big ol’ “hello sunshine” written across the tips of my flats. No, seriously, these shoes are the best ever. If you haven’t yet been introduced to Loly in the Sky, I highly recommend you browse their footwear! Oh, and I can personally vouch for the fact that they have excellent grip when climbing over mossy tree trunks..!
We took a strictly uphill walk (standard Wellington procedure) to what has quickly become one of my favourite places in the entire world. I’ve been saying to Barnaby since we moved up here two months ago how we haven’t experienced Autumn at all. It’s slightly annoying as I really do love it, and it only comes once a year. It was a little stroke of luck to discover the prettiest pathway completely decked out in yellow leaves, despite it being winter. We were followed by a cheeky blackbird that would boune very close to us and then quickly fly away. If you know me, you’ll know I am obsessed with any animal interactions, especially the cheeky kind, (with the exception of crocodiles!) so it really was quite a perfect day. And sunny weather too? Yes please!
