G has a birthday coming up shortly, and as we have a (Loafer) gig the weekend of said birthday, we took this weekend out for a romantic (ok, dirty) getaway to Little Akaloa, on Banks Peninsula.
We stopped in at the Hilltop Tavern, which whilst not quite on the way, is always worthwhile for the view over Akaroa Harbour and a drinkie...
I wore my splendid new-to-me Small Earth Vintage 50's frock, and
Cardi-70's, opshopped in Reefton about 10 years ago; I just rediscovered it
Coat-50's, Two Squirrels
Vintage bow tie in hair and earrings-from the divoon Tamera
Necklace- a gift from G
Sunglasses-Catch a Thief
Handbag-60's, a vintage shop in Portland
And then off we toddled, arriving at our destination, Chichley Lodge...which sounds rather grand for a tiny one bedroom box with an outdoor toilet, doesn't it?!
But what about that view?!
The decor is fairly 80's, but who cares?!
We were cosy and comfy whilst watching the rain and stuffing our faces with all manner of treats and wine.....
Off with its cork!
Ha, I can't remember which little harbour we were at, one of the little ones at the top, towards the right...I think...
I had a wee panic pack on Thursday night, and threw in a pile of stuff......forgot most of my underwear, but hey, I had plenty of frocks!
Yeah, it's all about that view!
Here's a little video; we're trying to spot a wood pidgeon that had flown up into a tree nearby....
