terry terry, or quite often ky terry). Kaiteriteri is one of the busiest beaches in the South Island, maybe in New Zealand ...
... a few freebies. We had worked out a nice way of saying 'we won't be buying any of your wines, as were on a meager budget'. This was roughly, 'Are you open tomorrow, as we will probably pop back in for a bottle or two. Honest.'
We stopped to eat our sandwiches (wine tasting is hungry work, you know), before hitting a vineyard specialising in bubbly. Sarah was all up for moving in, and we even knew of a friend back home who could assist in ...
