Here's a Happy New Year postcard to our readers from one of the most physically beautiful places on the planet: New Zealand's Fiordland. I took this photo several days ago. We were driving along on the road between the little town of Te Anau and Milford Sound on the Firodland coast. I could not resist to stop and take a photo of the wildflowers -- Mountain Lupines -- with the snowcapped mountains in the background. Hope it brings good thoughts to everyone. We wish everyone a happy and healthy 2008. We'll be back home soon!Bobbie & Jerry

Happy Holidays, I hope you are still enjoying your Kiwi adventures. NZ has been on my list of must see before I die places for a long time. Looking at your pictures just makes me even more determined. What beautiful scenery. The lupines make me a bit home sick for Texas and bluebonnets (another lupine) which turn entire fields denim blue every spring.
It's beautiful - makes me think of God. Thanks for dropping by. May the New Year bring you love, happiness, good health and more blessings.
It does bring good thoughts. And so do your warm wishes!Thank you, guys.Wishing you a very happy New Year too,-Jos:)
