These are our friends Ben & Sarah who hail from the rugged Wairarapa region of New Zealand. We stopped in to see these guys at their home in Masterton one evening during our 2013 trip to NZ.
The sun was setting in a jaw dropping way so we took the opportunity to take some photos in their front yard. Ben probably would have been a comedian in another life, as you may be able to see from some of his classic facials in the photos below. We’re glad that in the beautiful Sarah he’s found someone that appreciates his jokes.
We weren’t able to catch up with these guys during our most recent trip so looking back at these photos reminds us that a lot can change in a year. Ben & Sarah recently welcomed their baby girl Ruby into the world (yay!) and said goodbye to little Yoda the dog.
