night skies

well, what a beautiful night we had on Saturday,Tim had his per review group staying in Twizel for the weekend.. all GP's from around the region that come togther for  a bit of a junket really, but they did have a couple of meetings that add up continued medical education points for their annual practice certificates so some work and some play...

They had a meeting on Saturday morning, then hit the skifield at Ohau,


lots of sunny skies whilst skiing,

then dinner at one of the local restaurants, 

and then...

the BIG night skies at the Mt John Observatory in Tekapo 

hmmmm.... blogger is not letting me load any photos tonight, so you might just have to pop over here  or here and see for yourself!

...but the really good photos are here

and even more here. It is seriously worth a visit if you are ever in this area. It is simply stunning!!! particularly if you manage to get very clear night skies like we did.

I hope you are having a  really great week!

happy stitching

Oh my, this looks like so much fun! Lovely place to be, but I don't think we will ever make it.

We went up to the observatory last year. That is one very big sky, must be stunning at night.
