Yesterday we drove to Lake Roxburgh Village, crossed the Clutha River/Matau-Au via Roxburgh hydro dam, and walked up Commissioners Track to the Spillway viewing area (3rd pic). The noise of the water blasting down to the river below was loud and constant! Central Otago, New Zealand. The first time we've walked this track and we... Continue Reading →
Out and About in Central Otago
We had a really enjoyable day in Central Otago for my birthday on 31 October 2021 (spring). These are a few of the photos we took, in various locations. New Zealand.
Evil snarling beast with wicked teeth.. "HOONIGAN" showed up as we were crossing the carpark. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
Cash 4 Scrap | US Sheriff car
Look what we found on a recent local walk! Douglas County Sheriff Car. Bizarre! Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. Taken by Nigel, 03 May 2020.

It turns out the proud owner of the vehicle is a champion table tennis player hence the number plate TT GIRL. She started playing table... Continue Reading →

Years ago a cable car service operated between Mornington and the city. Recently, long-held plans to re-establish the cable car... Continue Reading →
Classy Old Cars
Early this month, 02 March, we had a day in Invercargill. Sitting in a cafe in Windsor we saw vintage cars driving past and lo and behold, they stopped in a nearby carpark. We wandered over there and had a look around - we were just lucky as this was their starting point for a... Continue Reading →
Glad I Met Gladys
Morris Minor 1000 with the name "Gladys" written neatly in red, right-hand side at the back. Dicey, yet very endearing. The white and red colour scheme looked great! We found Gladys by chance when we parked at Queens Park, Invercargill. Photos taken by Liz 08 Sept 2018. Southland, New Zealand I also posted a somewhat... Continue Reading →
Morris Minor 1000 "Gladys" (name written in red at the back), obviously the pride and joy of its owner. Parked at Queens Park, Invercargill, New Zealand. Liz 08 Sept 2018. I liked the surreal intrusion of reflections.
