Dear Deer

Yesterday was a beautiful day, I wish more days in winter could be like yesterday! I suggested to Nigel that we take a drive to the country pub at Waikaka. We sat outside and ate burgers in the sunshine. I drank cider and Nigel had a beer. Waikaka, Southland / West Otago, New Zealand Shadowy... Continue Reading →

Bright-Eyed Bus

Look at this travelling bus with bright friendly eyes! We headed out for a walk this morning and decided to visit a cafe in Gore. While walking down the street in town we spied this interesting bus.

Faded Fantasy

When wandering around Dunedin on 21 May 2018, I came across this rather faded looking mural on a wall facing the Scenic Circle Southern Cross Hotel carpark, just off High Street. It didn't make much sense to me and I found it a puzzling artwork. I did a search and found it was painted in... Continue Reading →

This little cupcake is so cute with its lavender icing and googly eyes! Although the googly eyes are great fun it was the turquoise and lavender rose-shaped cupcakes that had... Continue Reading →
