The middle of somewhere

After an epic journey beginning at the middle of somewhere in Maniototo, we are now back in the middle of somewhere else, sunny Nelson. We loved being on holiday, but it's always great to come home.
The children are obsessed with the idea of the middle of nowhere. From time to time as we were driving they asked, "Is this middle of nowhere?"
This is the back of the Rock and Pillar Range, the middle-of-somewhere where my sister's place is. This was taken from the Kissing Gate Cafe in Middlemarch, where you can get fantastic South Island food, and a nice hot cuppatea.

And this is the Maniototo, only it's normally gold, not green. To me, the Maniototo is a golden basin with a big, big, big sky.

Next post: The fantastic haul from the Catholic Women's League thrift shop in the bustling metropolis of Ranfurly.
