Summer Smile

Yesterday was like one big smile. Beautiful summer day, perfect temperature, blue sky. We headed over to Tapanui and then continued to Roxburgh in Central Otago via Moa Flat, a favourite route for us. At Roxburgh we looked in on a book and white elephant sale. I picked up a book for 40 cents and... Continue Reading →

Blowing in the Wind. Country drive near Waikaia 20 Oct 2018. Spreading lime. I like the way Nigel caught the road ahead and the road behind, and the nice clouds. Southland, New Zealand

Heads Up, Waikaia

Another interesting aside that dates back to our Waikaia trip on 20 October 2018. After we'd arrived and parked outside the pub we went for a bit of a walk. We found ourselves on this street with houses down one side and a wide tree-lined grassy verge on the other. It looked inviting so we... 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 →

Thyme and Thyme Again

Its A Dog!

For:  Weather Vane Wednesday. When driving through the Catlins on Saturday we visited a favourite cafe that we haven't visited for maybe three years. Its an old school in a rural location with the remarkable name of Niagara Falls. As we parked I joyfully pointed out the dog weather vane (pretty sure they have or... 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...

Seating at Switzers

When we visited the location of the old 1860s gold mining town of Switzers near Waikaia, I also took photos of the concrete picnic table and seats that are near the church. What a lovely place this is, and I'm so glad to now live near here. To see the church and the detail of... Continue Reading →

Red Barn near Tapanui. Out on a country drive we saw this rustic red barn in farmland near Tapanui, Southland, New Zealand. Taken by Liz 20 Oct 2018

Switzers Church and Cross

About 3km from the little town named Waikaia (in the middle of nowhere) that I've posted about before, there's the location of the older town that dates back to the gold mining days of the 1860s. The old town had to be moved three times because they kept siting it in the middle of gold... Continue Reading →
