Holiday part two


Blogger is mixing up the order of the pictures we are trying to post. Anyways these are some of the little country houses in the next town that mum stayed at.



Martinborough is a small country town that is in the middle of what is now a large wine growing region. Lots of these houses are owned by rich townies, and can be hired for the weekend.



They are very sweet, and all a 5 minute walk to the local pub, supermarket and cafes.


Luckily most retain their original features, and haven't been torn out and replaced with modern houses.


This is the one that mum and her friends stayed at. It got lovely morning sun, and you could sit on the porch in the sun, next to the lavender and drink your fresh orange/grapefruit drink squeezed from fruit that grows in the back garden.

  2. We also think it is very good that the houses haven't been knocked down to make way for something else. They have so much character. And as for that fresh juice... yum yum! :)

  3. Very cute little houses. They look to be cat friendly. We were having trouble with blogger too and our pictures.

  4. How quaint these cottages are! Mom loves lavender! We think she would love it there, because she loves NZ wines and the country has so many different types of terrains and scenery to see!

  7. Those houses are very cute!

    We noticed the same thing about posting photos lately. So, if you have pictures 1, 2, and 3, you must add them in the order 3, 2, and 1 to come out right.
