Port of Call

At Bluff, Nigel and I are sitting in the car eating fish and chips - parked on a street up the hill to get a good view of the port and harbour. We see two tugboats moving toward the wharf area - both going in the same direction but one going bow-first and the other... Continue Reading →

Finding the Light

When we were at Bluff on 13 Nov I wanted to take a look at the Stirling Point Lighthouse, one of the many navigation markers for ships. We parked where the tar-seal ends and then walked down the gravel no-exit lane to find the lighthouse. We've only seen it from a distance before. Southland, New... Continue Reading →

Bluff Tsunami Which Way

For much of the south coast, if you're near the sea then you're also in a Tsunami Hazard Zone. Freaky if you have the misfortune to experience an earthquake while you're there. When we were at Bluff on 13 Nov, specifically at Stirling Point, I saw this sign which I've never come across before. I... Continue Reading →

Tiny Turret

This tiny turret building is on the 13-acre property of the Heartland Hotel Croydon on the edge of Gore (just down the hill from where we live). It was a quick stop on our way home today - I thought I'd spotted a wind vane on top but its just a decorative spire. No idea... Continue Reading →

Farm Barn Vanity

We were enjoying a country drive on the outskirts of Gore on 07 Nov 2018 when we came across this wonderful huge barn. I've never seen a barn like this in New Zealand, extending in three directions AND to my great surprise I spotted a WEATHER VANE! Gore, Southland, New Zealand. Nigel took these photos...

Invercargill Water Features

Invercargill gets plenty of rain located as it is, way down the south end of the South Island of New Zealand... one of the streets in the city centre even has a prominent umbrella sculpture! In Queens Park yesterday I took photos of some water features. It seems fitting to post photos of water features... Continue Reading →

Prey, Dance With Me

Yesterday we were in Invercargill and Bluff on a fine but windy day and we had a great time. Took lots of photos. Saw new and interesting things. Just sayin' because I haven't got time to make much of a post just now but thought I'd share this character with you that I found in... Continue Reading →

Worth Getting Up For

"So, early on a January morning in Winnipeg, when I looked out the window to see fog instead of a snowstorm, I was beyond myself. I almost forgot to exchange my bedroom slippers for boots before I was out the door. And then, to add to my pleasure, when I got outside it was warm... Continue Reading →

Romans Cottage, Arrowtown

At the end of the Miners' Cottages in Buckingham Street is Romans Cottage, this is where we were headed as it houses a very nice cafe named Provisions Of Arrowtown. We hadn't been there for many years and were glad to find them still in business, stopping there awhile for refreshments. Arrowtown, Queenstown Lakes District,... Continue Reading →

Which Way: Arrowtown

There's probably nothing that's more iconic of Arrowtown than the row of historic miners' cottages on Buckingham Street. This is a gold rush town and these cottages date back to the 1800s - I'm unsure of the exact date but we'd be talking 1870s to 1880s. Arrowtown, Queenstown Lakes District, New Zealand; photos taken by... Continue Reading →
