As soon as the summer holidays rolled around, the children were itching to travel and we decided that Nelson was going to be our Mini vacation Destination.Using google, we decided to stay in
Bethany Christian Park in Keriteriteri and it seemed like a great place to stay even though it was not in Nelson.After a few emails back and forth, our stay there was confirmed.
J thought it would be a good idea to take Lewis Pass route on the way to the camp…
We started on our trip,late afternoon after J came back from work.It was a lovely sunny afternoon with blue skies, the route scenic and beautiful ,with some of our favourite songs on our playlist _that had been carefully put together for the trip_playing in the background, it was a very enjoyable ride. We wanted to get to the camping park before sunset but we couldn’t stop ourselves at every little turn to snap a few pictures.
For the first time, I experienced the heady scent of the wild flowers! The Scent filled the air. I stood there letting the gentle breeze tickle my cheeks inhaling the freshness in the air
The boys were both asleep by now. J and I took a break near this river
mail boxes in the middle of nowhere.
Breathtaking view ,this picture does not do even a shade of justice to that !
By the time we reached Bethany Park, it was quite late and we were all ready to crash! After a quick registration by a very friendly manager, we were happy to have comfy beds to sleep on in our heated cabin at Bethany Christian Park in Keitaritari.
