My #NewYear reminiscence – #Hobbiton, #NZ
My contribution to the New Year’s retrospection this year is a self-indulgent re-run of the fabulous trip we took 4 years ago – the total geek-fest tour of the Lord of the Rings film sites on New Zealand.
Probably the best New Year’s Day ever, spent in Hobbiton!
Me, outside Sam and Rosie’s cottage
Brian, my partner, investigating the interior of a hobbit hole
Steps up to Bagend
The door is invitingly ajar…
The party tree
Alex (one of our party) tries out a doorstep for size
The view back up to Bagend
Over the bridge to The Green Dragon
Sign of the Green Dragon
Inside The Green Dragon – alas, a distinct lack of hobbits
Serving up their own brew in The Green Dragon
Shame we have to leave, but the day has to finish somewhere…
Now is it time for tea, or supper?
