Clutha at Roxburgh

The river photos are of the Clutha River at Roxburgh from a riverside path, Sunday 23 Jan 2022. The Māori name Mata-au references the swift surface current of the river. The rest of the photos were taken from a spot in a small section of pine trees where I paused to enjoy the nice setting and dappled light on this bright summer afternoon. My husband Nigel is in one of my pics. The last photo has a small selection of info from a sign up by the street. It explains the Scottish origins of the ‘Clutha’ name for the river.

  1. I agree with the others, Liz, a great wandering spot. That 9000 was a good investment to provide passage over the formidable current for nearly a century.

    I love your straight up into the pines image and of course nice to see Nigel under the pines!

    1. Your comment(s) raised my spirits enormously Ellen! Had vax booster y’day and the effects are kicking in today. Nothing serious, just a sore arm and felt a bit down. Hearing from you helped cheer me 🙂

      1. Glad to give you a boost, Liz, along with your booster! I’m so glad to hear that you’ve been able to get boosted, and hope you and Nigel remain healthy. Ted had a similar reaction to his. I’m usually a “reactor” to about anything and had a sore arm for less than 24 hours. 😁

        1. “a boost” lol 😀 Thanks Ellen! It’s good to have this done. Omicron has only just escaped into the community here. Border quarantine kept it at bay for weeks but so many cases were arriving with it that it was just a matter of time.
