Sometimes, it is hard to find the words to write. For various reasons I have found it increasingly difficult to keep up with this blog this past year, and then a few days ago life here in Christchurch took an unexpected turn and I find myself once more bereft and unable to link my thoughts. So instead of words, having found myself perusing photos of the country I love, I decided to share some visuals of a fun event I attended with my partner in rural Canterbury last April. The Hororata Night Glow was at the time a unique event where hot air balloons lit up the sky in time to music and although a little cold, we were glad we made the drive away from the city to attend. I was amused to see a Tennents Lager balloon, a reminder of my former life in Scotland. The event is taking place again this year in May.
