I’m fortunate to live on 2.5 acres on the Arnold River of the West Coast of New Zealand with my husband Cliff. Although retired I enjoy doing freelance graphic design. After moving to New Zealand almost 30 years ago, I’m proud to say I became a New Zealand citizen on February 19 2016.
We have lots of time now so we bake everything from scratch and have a vegetable garden and small orchard.
Keeping our land looking good keeps us busy. We do a little woodturning and fiddle around in our workshop, practise yoga and go out with a walking group every second Wednesday—there are many beautiful walks within a few hours drive.
The photo in our blog header is part of the view from our kitchen window. No wonder we like cooking so much!
Like Clare I spend most of my days either working on our patch of land or (especially when it rains) being inside either baking, playing the piano or on the computer developing programs mostly for fun. Life is good here on the coast, every day is an adventure.
