Cristina made her first visit to Norfolk Island when she was just 6 weeks old. At that time she was with her mother Sally, who is my sister.
Over the years, she has made many visits and has always felt a strong affinity with the island.
On his first visit 5 years ago, her husband Brandt also fell in love with the lifestyle and landscape.
Brandt and Tina became a little busy producing their first two littlies, Teddy (3) and Sienna (1).
But now they have decided to make their sea-change. They have left behind their home in the semi-rural hinterland of Noosa in Queensland, and have come to enjoy the delights of Norfolk Island for a while.
Cristina (Tina) and Brandt have taken on managing our family business, Fletcher Christian Apartments, and are wow-ing our visitors with their incredible hospitality, as well as getting involved in the community.
Meanwhile, Tina has decided to start her own blog, to record her experiences and activities while on Norfolk Island. This is not only enavbling her to keep in touch with friends and family back home, but is also a showcase for her wonderful photos. Tina has always been a clever, keen and prolific photographer, but has recently purchased a super-duper camera, with which she is excelling herself!!!

I think you will realise that Cristina and I are kindred spirits in many ways, and understand why we all love having our niece/cousin and her family around!!
