Hawkes Bay

Lots of Hawkes Bay people seem to migrate to wellington, James being one of them. 

James's mum lives in a beautiful house on the hill in Maraekakaho with the most spectacular view. She has been working tirelessly on her garden, and property for the last few years. And slowly but surely she is transforming the once bare hillside into her own little patch of paradise.

It makes for the perfect place to escape the windy Capital every once and in a while :)
