Riverstone Kitchen has extensive beautiful and functional gardens surrounding the restaurant, retail buildings and carpark. Nigel gave me free rein on the photos he took so despite losing mine in yesterday's laptop disaster I can still share some of the experience. This post continues my previous post Dot's Dream Castle so you can find more... Continue Reading →
This story begins with COLOUR. Yesterday, driving home from Kurow, we'd driven through Waitaki Bridge and were on our way to Oamaru. Suddenly in front of us was a big sign for Riverstone Kitchen. My excitement knew no bounds... I'd long wanted to visit this place! Both of these photos were taken from their car... Continue Reading →

He's been posting photo articles about his recent trip to Cuba and this photo particularly caught my attention. I'm pleased to share it here with his permission. Photo by Lignum Draco "Centrally...

We'd never noticed this bottle effect until recently when we happened to be in Vogel Street in the late afternoon light. Dunedin, New Zealand.
Port Chalmers is the main port for the City of Dunedin and you can see the big container cranes as you go down the main street. These are random photos that we took when we visited the township for a few hours recently. Small boat in the boat harbour. I thought it was super cute!... Continue Reading →
REBLOG: I've never seen anything like these colourful buildings so I've decided for today's post to simply reblog this post (which I only found this morning).
