Hey macky! Christmas hugs to ya! (even though they're prolly a day late in your world...)
Hope you had a sunny, sandy, beachy time yourself! It certainly looks like half of NZ was out there with you :D

Grrrr don't you dare showing that. It's freezing cold here, and not even white, LOL!
Is that a mountain starting just behind the buildings?

Happy holidays from Britain, Macky. Looks like you're having a ball.

Hi Macky - haven't seen you around much - hope you had a great Christmas. That sounds like a great tradition. We have a similar tradition around here, only we have to break a hole in the ice to get to the water. :D

TY TY Veronica! and cheers to you too!
LOL Raindrop! Wellington is like San Francisco for the hills and like Chiacgo for the wind! The harbour you see here is nearly the only flat bit in Wellington!
Ta, VeldaJ - Gotta admit, xmas out of doors is way easier than xmas cooped up indoors with all the family in Britain! Even allowing that my Welsh inlaws are wonderful people!
LOL Oldthumbs! I guess I haven't been around much...got talked into signing up for Summer latin at uni, and discovered why latin is inflicted on the young and captive :D
Here are a few more xmas pix. These are also of the Harbour beach:

What great pix, macky! You can really feel the "whole family outing" atmosphere, and the last two are fabulous, what a great little pixie!

Merry ChristmaS!!! I'm jealous of your warm weather, but it isn't Christmas to me if there isn't snow on the ground!
Also, talking about New Zealand, i just saw "The Return of the King"... one of these days I'd love to visit New Zealand!

Wonderful pictures Macky, I just can't imagine Christmas on the beach. Obviously I've been brainwashed from childhood, lol. Really enjoyed seeing these photos, especially the last two, fantastic!

Splendid photos Macky, looks like everyone was having a great time but I have to admit the beach with all that sunshine just wouldn't feel like christmas to me.
