The Fair seemed to be bigger and better this year. Live bands playing music, children dancing, crafty stalls, plants stalls, great food, and some amazing bargins. Ben and Hannah had a fantastic time, but our wallet felt very empty at the end of the day!! They went on the swing ride, the ferris wheel, bumper cars, trampoline (with harnesses) They loved it.
A short but steep walk from Nelson is the Centre of New Zealand. Tressa and I had a lovely saturday morning last week. We walked up to the view point overlooking Nelson. It was higher than I was expecting and so the view was great. I would definitely recommend it.
We loved this walk as a family. It was a bit scarey at times with a steep drop on one side , but Ben and Hannah managed it fine. They loved the swing bridge to cross the river on the way up. In fact that was their highlight of the walk.
When we got to the top all the children wanted to do was to dive in and swim under the falls. It took all our powers of persuation to convince the children that it would safer to take a swim further down stream where the current was not as strong!! My kids are mad!!!
