Railway Station and Hotel

Invercargill is at the south end of the South Island of New Zealand. On the other side of the block from the main street, the west side of the inner city, you'll find a very beautiful railway hotel on which sits the elegant wind vane that I showed you in  Wind Vane, Invercargill. Across from... Continue Reading →

Wind Vane, Invercargill

I spotted this wind vane as Nigel drove me past the beautiful Victoria Railway Hotel in Invercargill on Friday afternoon, Jan 11, 2019. Later in the day we returned and Nigel took some photos for me... I cropped these from two of his photos. I'll do another post with more general images of the hotel... Continue Reading →

Weathercock

Amazingly I've located another wind vane in Gore. I spotted it recently from the passenger side of the car as we drove down a side street. It sits on a shed roof on a private residential property. Wikipedia advises three names for these - weather vane, wind vane or weathercock. I guess this is a... Continue Reading →

Gore Xmas Houses

Here's a couple of houses decorated for Christmas in Gore, Southland, New Zealand from a late night drive around that Nigel and I did on Friday 21 December. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of residents willing to put in the effort to decorate! As I hit the publish button its getting very close... Continue Reading →

You turn off onto a gravel driveway that goes up a hill, and around the bend this lovely little church is revealed. Switzers dates back to the gold mining days of the 1860s. Photos taken...

Nigel and I were both there so we took photos and I also took a photo of the flowers in an island bed of the nearby road intersection with Gore's main street... Continue Reading →

Waikaia Happiness

Happiness is... a trip to Waikaia. We enjoy a trip into the back country so much and the village of Waikaia in the middle of nowhere is a fantastic place to go. Nigel and I went there on 20 October. I've already shared some photos from that day's trip - we covered a lot of... Continue Reading →

Arrowtown in Spring

I still have photos taken in an Arrowtown residential street from when we visited on 27 October 2018. This was right in the spring blossom time. Here is a lovely cottage with wisteria blooming under the tracery of the verandah and a layer of fallen cherry blossom petals coating the hedge and street verge. On... Continue Reading →

Clock Tower At Night

Gore has a clock tower and Nigel took these photos on Friday night when we left home after seeing there was a lovely full moon in the evening sky. The clock chimes the hours and its only in the last couple of days that I've noticed I can hear the chimes from home, possibly because... Continue Reading →
