The big red bus

It was time for an afternoon excursion and a red double decker bus trip around Nelson was our families first choice, so we did it. We had two hours of fun, it was hot, hot, hot upstairs and there was lots of chatter as the children (and parents) saw Nelson from a much higher perspective.  It was rather funny to pass by the traffic lights and be level with the red, green and orange circles.  
Our trip took us out to Richmond, along the deviation, down to Tahunanui, along Rocks Road, around the boat marina, out to Founders park and up to the Centre of New Zealand Park for afternoon tea (and a lolly scramble).  Then back on the bus and back to kindergarten just in time for school to get out.  The time raced by but it was a great way to have a kindergarten session with a difference and an outing into our beautiful community.
