With Julie away teaching, Jo looked after us exceptionally well and cooked a delicious breakfast. His local knowledge and expertise on trees, ecology etc was very informative, and we began to understand why possums are such a problem. The cabin in the garden was very comfortable, with views out across the gardens and up to the mountains. Plenty of country sounds coming from the neighbouring fields. We went up in the light aircraft - firstly out to the Tasman sea and then over the Franz Josef glacier. Amazing views and not at all scary. We were so lucky with the weather and it makes such a difference.
