Thankful Thursday

I have 3 days and 15 hours and 44 minutes until my departure back to Scotland.  

That is a very long time if one has toothache.  If one has a life to pack up into The Cupboard as well as live each day to the full then it is ein Augenblick. 

Today I was thankful for the moments spent just relaxing at Ninety Mile Beach in Northland with Pauline.  It set me up for the rest of my stay here.  I have saved two of my (and, I think, Pauline's) favourites from amongst the photos I took when we were there.


 For the peace and tranquility of those moments I am truly thankful.

  9. A very, very good reason to be thankful; peace and tranquility are so precious and so often missing from people's daily lives.

  10. Peaceful....lovely moments to stop and soak up life around you.
    I couldn't risk lying in the grass like that though, I'd be itchy all over, but it looks like fun.
    Where has the time gone? Only two days left? Happy packing.
