I had always wanted to visit a couple of shops in this area and although I didn't think it was too important, Wayne insisted I see them. I thought he should play golf - after all we were staying at a golf course but he wanted me to pay them a visit.. He was down right pushy about it and I'm glad he was because we had a fabulous day. The others are not into shopping so they stayed behind to play golf and this gave us the only time we could use the car.. Everything was falling into place nicely.
We stopped at a bridge not too far from Terrace Downs and I knew I had to take another photo of the colour of the water...gorgeous..
Feeling hungry, we chose a garden centre for brekky. This statue was outside and was originally a tree branch but had been transformed into a rather large bird by adding metal to it.. very impressive and so was its weight and price... I don't think I have enough room in my luggage to fit this in..
First place to visit was Annie's Country Quilt Store...oh my - too many things to look at..
Roses, quilt store and hubby - am I in heaven??
Next stop was to The Christmas Hut in Christchurch.. Helen had told me about this place being amazing and she was not wrong... This is a great day - quilt store and Christmas store in one day..woo hoo..
I took a quick pic on the way out... sorry..
Thank you sweetheart, you are just the "bestest" hubby ever and I am so glad you thought it was a fabulous day too... Love you heaps..
