Going, Glowing, Green

As darkness descends we switch on the outside light between cottage and office, and the back porch glows green. We're quietly amused, yet at the same time we're rather fond of the effect.. I enjoy seeing the green glow when I look through the kitchen window 🙂 -- another colourful light that we've inherited with... Continue Reading →

Crazy About Clyde

I really love beautiful Clyde! Clyde, Central Otago, New Zealand We drove the Earnscleaugh back road with its... Continue Reading →

Holding On and Letting Go

Autumn foliage colours complement this pretty church and brighten up the street frontage, further up the street from where we live. The photos were taken during my walk yesterday, a glorious sunny, blue sky day. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand My title is taken from a quote I read this morning, I've found it's attributed...

Come On In

When I walked up the street yesterday in the glorious autumn sunshine, these three properties seemed to welcome me in with their feeling of open-ness and warmth. All three are very different but I felt drawn to each one. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand Either of the horizontal photos can be viewed larger (click on... Continue Reading →

Dunrobin Hall Vane

On our way home to Gore from Central Otago we passed through a tiny rural locality named Dunrobin that has a very weathered public hall. I spotted a small arrow up on the roof. No idea if it still works but surely it's intended as a wind vane! For:   Weather Vane Wednesday Challenge - March... Continue Reading →

Pub at the Port

In yesterday's post I said we'd been out for dinner in Port Chalmers during our recent overnighter in Dunedin. We didn't take any photos but I took some during a visit to the same establishment in January - I'll share those with you instead. Its a really nice pub, welcoming and friendly, comfortable, and with... Continue Reading →

Support for Seafarers

I have an interest in ports, ships, containers, swing-lift trucks, port machinery, stacks of containers, stacks of logs.. I love the port environment! We've just got home from an overnighter to Dunedin and last night we went to Port Chalmers to have dinner at the Portsider restaurant and pub. Port Chalmers is about a 15-minute...

Waipapa Point, Ways

This is one of the last wooden lighthouses built in New Zealand, first lit on January 01, 1884. It still does its job but the light has been automated since 1975. For photos of the lighthouse itself see my recent post  Waipapa Point Lighthouse. As mentioned in that post you can walk to the lighthouse... Continue Reading →

This is one of the last wooden lighthouses built in New Zealand and was first lit on January 01, 1884. Happily for the visitor its very easy to get... Continue Reading →

AMP Amicus in Oamaru

Early this year I did a blog-post about  Mother Amicus  in the old rose garden in Queens Park, Invercargill. We were standing on a street corner in Oamaru and I suddenly realised a statue perched on top of the opposite building was the same figure as what I'd seen in Invercargill. These photos show the...
