Governor's Bay Getaway
After our shopping we got Chinese food for lunch. Enough that we could have left overs for breakfast (and bring some home for the children to enjoy). Thankfully we could check in to the apartment at 1pm, so we had the whole afternoon to just relax. With the accommodation being on such a steep hill, with a very steep drive, we were glad we had bought our dinner things and didn't need to head out again.
What a magnificent view though. The view below is from the bathroom. :-)
Below: 6pm. So pretty.
Above: 7:20am. Another beautiful sunrise to enjoy - although quite different from the day before.
We only needed to check out at 12. So we enjoyed a nice relaxing morning and then headed down to Lyttelton for lunch. This photo is from Lyttelton side, looking back to Governor's bay.
We could have just gone through the tunnel at Lyttelton, but we drove back this way as we had seen a number of walk ways on Dyers Pass. So we decided to go for a walk after lunch.
We took the selfie from the top of the hill, at the recreation centre. Most of the walk was in forest, so in summer it will be really nice for walks. We were already thinking about making a plan to bring the children at some point.
I thank the Lord for this bit of time we were able to get. Both Rachiel (teacher aide) and Rachel were so great in looking after Asher while we were away, and the Spencer's took the other 3 children. I am so grateful.
