Bunch of Deadbeats

After taking our leave from the beautiful angel at Waipahi Cemetery we went for a long country drive and eventually ended up in Balclutha. Our favourite pizza outlet was shut so we went to Casafuego Eatery and Bar, a colourful establishment with a very friendly skeleton crew 🙂 Balclutha, Clutha District, New Zealand. 22 Nov...

Creepy Challenge

Very chilled out skeleton above the bar at Casafuego Eatery & Bar, Balclutha, South Otago, New Zealand -- Liz, 11 Oct 2019. For "creepy" photo challenge.

Casafuego Pool Room

These photos taken during a winter visit to Casafuego Mexican cafe/restaurant in Balclutha on 08 July 2019. They'd added a pool table since our previous visit. We loved the look but our photos came out rather 'flat' due to the light conditions. Today I had a bit of a 'play' with my recently downloaded photo... Continue Reading →

Lychee Dessert Cake

This evening I found THREE MORE wind vanes in Balclutha! I wanted to photograph all five so... Continue Reading →

Nigel is a Landscape Architect, based in Dunedin and actively working through Otago and Southland, and further afield by arrangement.... Continue Reading →

Green Wall (Part 2)

This post continues Green Wall in Rural Town Centre. Balclutha, Otago, New Zealand. My previous post showed the public square with the green wall in a general context. These photos are close-ups of the actual plants. Most of the plants are native to New Zealand but one or two aren't. Where I'm fairly sure of... Continue Reading →

Green Wall in Rural Town Centre

On Monday I accompanied Nigel from Dunedin to Balclutha (rural township about an hour's drive from our home in Dunedin). With some time on my hands, I decided to wander up the main street and take a look at the Green Wall that was installed during a major Main Street Upgrade in 2015. I was... Continue Reading →
