A varied week: web sites to farms

Dougal is back at school, and I'm back behind the keyboard. My tasks have been a bit exciting though as I've finally cracked how to make a shopping cart for my clients to buy from, and I thought it was going to be a real mission, but again I've found an amazing solution thereby bypassing a huge capital outlay, so smiles all around!

Yesterday Roger and I went for a walk up the East Matukituki valley in Mt Aspiring National Park. We got our feet wet, but there was so much to photograph we did not get as much exercise as we'd planned.

An old hut part of the original Mt Aspiring Station in the East Matukituki. The original Mt Aspiring Station homestead nearby was vacated long ago when the farming family the Aspinalls moved down valley a little to a warmer spot which means they don't have to repeatedly cross the dynamic west branch of the Matukituki river. The main building is now a school camp lodge and been extended in all directions. The garden though is a marvel of old trees and scrubs planted eons ago in this wild environment..

Lovely photos as usual, Donald. I especially like the old hut.
