Kiss the Sky

Aotearoa: "The Land of the Long White Cloud"

Did I mention that the sky is amazing down here? Really fantastic. And it changes from minute to minute. Literally.

We've been caught in a few rain storms on walks completely unprepared, without an umbrella or rain coat, and found ourselves huddling under trees to keep from getting drenched. The good thing is it really seems to pass quickly. Or at least enough that we can run home during a break.

I felt better when I saw Kiwi's pull their bikes over & seek shelter as well. Felt a little less like a whimp, see my "girl make fire" post.

We really have to learn how to learn how to judge the weather. Especially because I've been using the clothes line to dry my laundry like a true Kiwi.

However, I think it's a skill that us Angelinos don't possess, but we will learn. I wonder if there's a class for that? Or a book? NZ Weather Forecasting for Dummies.


  1. FABULOUS!!!!!!!!! i'm soooooooooo jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Oh, Amery, you are in my favorite place in the world! So beautiful! So friendly! I love New Zealand.

    We were there for several summer months and the climate is perfect for us hearty Montanans, but my sister-in-law from Hawaii was always wearing her long johns.


    Thanks for your posts. They bring back great memories.
