Winter - 2015
Tramping is on the agenda, we climb the Pinnacles in the Coromandel Ranges
and Mount Pirongia in the Waikato.
July - 2015
After I finish on Pete's Dragon Kirsten and I have a cycling holiday in France. Yes again!
We spend a week staying at the luxurious L'Abbaye-Château de Camon, at Camon in the Ariège.
We visit the nearby Rennes-le-Château, but disappointingly fail to find the Holy Grail.
We then join up with the Bikestyle Tours: Pyrennes, Provence, Alps & Paris trip to follow the 102nd Tour de France.
We knock off the Tourmalet, Col dAubisque, Col du Soulor, Cauterets, Mont Ventoux, Alpe d'Huez,
Col de la Madeleine, the Telegraphe & Galibier, and the fabulous Lacets de Montvernier.
The temperature topped 42ºC in the Aveyron and Tarn Gorges - hot!
We have a great time, and as usual ate far, far, too much yummy food.
Xmas - 2014
Back home in Auckland I build us new road bikes: a EMC for Kirsten, and a new Colnago C60 pour moi.
October - 2014
We hike to Cape Brett Lighthouse, and stay at the old light-house keepers cottage.
August - 2014
I start work on Pete's Dragon, a much-loved children's film for Disney.
Electra joins me to be the Graphics Designer, and we rent a handsome apartment in Shed 21 on the Wellington waterfront.
After we finish pre-production we relocate to Rotorua (shooting in Tokoroa), and then Gore (shooting in Tapanui) in Southland.
We enjoy the southern hospitalty, and some mighty fine cheese rolls!
