You know, if you'd told me a year ago I'd soon be uploading five photos a week, I would have smiled nicely, and said "Thank you." Of course, if you'd told me a year ago I could soon be uploading five photos a week, you would have been right!

It's been a fun journey, I've learnt a lot, and I really appreciate the positive feedback from so many people. So, as long as I keep seeing opportunities, it’ll be my pleasure to share my beloved Hawke's Bay with you all - enjoy J
