Besides staying in Port Stephens, and celebrating Waitangi Day, here are a few other highlights that the month of February brought with it.
I visited Mt Annan Botantical Gardens.
A startling blue tree in the middle of the gardens.
Australian natives...kangaroo paw.
Andrew's dad, John, turned 70, and Jessica 3.
We all went our for dinner for John's significant birthday. (I think anything with a '0' on the end is a significant birthday.)
Richard, and his friend Sean, both turned 40 (another significant one) and had a party to celebrate. Cath prepared a feast, and the garden was magnificent after Richard had spent all week working on it. And of course a commemorative CD was made to mark the occasion, with Richard and Sean's favourite music...a very eclectic mix indeed.
