This little piggy had finger lickin' chicken..... and Akaroa plans

Phoebe is off on her first flight this weekend. While her sisters stay with friends, she will fly north to Auckland, generously allowing her parents to go along for the ride too.

I just hope they can cope with her apparent new craving for finger lickin' chicken and chips...

While they head north, we are leaving the pets to the children and heading away ourselves to the wedding of my friend's daughter, out at Banks Peninsula, our very own local volcano. The town of Akaroa is nestled in the central harbour.

The wedding will be held at French Farm Winery, which is near Akaroa...the little "French" town on the beach, where the streets have lovely names, generally beginning with Rue....

We decided to go over Friday....the first time we have been away since our trip to Hanmer Springs last September. We did manage to get over to Akaroa a year ago, - so will be nice to revisit it.

Apart from the amazing scenery, I love the food over there....I think this blog says it all - and mentions some other places worth eating too!

In the meantime, fingers crossed for the rain to go, the air to warm up again, and a relaxing weekend for us, the happy couple and all their other members of the family who have come over with them from England for the event!
