South Island visit and Soroptimist Conference of NZ Clubs


I had been looking forward to the Conference and to visit Nelson in the South Island of NZ since last year. The week before I had to go, I became ill with bronchitis. I still wasn’t well on the Friday of our departure. It was cloudy and the weather report expected rain during the weekend.

I had a wonderful weekend. My good friend and I stayed in a motel about ten minutes walk from the Conference centre. We walked the Friday evening to register and a get -together to meet other members.

From the motel doorstep.

I did not attend the Saturday morning session because it was raining and I did not want to get wet.

The conference goers were taken into Nelson city by double decker bus. Nelson is known for its Saturday market.

My friend and I had a good lunch before the afternoon session.

The afternoon session was interesting.

We had a formal dinner Saturday evening.

 

Sunday was time for proposed remits and round off of Conference.

Sad to say that our return home did not go as we had planned. We missed our flight! Lucky for us we got two seats on a charter flight.

Goodbye Nelson

 

Hello Wellington!

We were glad to be back that afternoon.

    1. Ja, dis tragies dat die mensdom so uitbrei en die natuur so vertrap. Ek weet nie of jy kan sien dat op die koppies buite Wellington is hierdie reuse wind-opwekkers. Die koppie is nie meer dieselfde nie! Was my nogal interessant om te sien. Ek dink as jy op foto kliek sal hy vergroot dan kan jy mooi sien.
