Queen’s Birthday in New Zealand, June 2nd 2014

It is a public holiday in New Zealand as we commemorate the Queen’s birthday(NZ is a Monarchy with Queen Elizabeth ll of Britain the ruling sovereign).

In a very surprising, but delightful turn of events, the weather all weekend has been crisp and clear with loads of sunshine.

Some random photos of time spent out in the sun and the breeze today:

    Looks like a great weekend Lynley, as it was in Auckland also. I’ve learned to ignore the weather forecasts – they said rain on Sunday but it wasn’t true.
