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...

Album Page – Dunedin NZ

On Friday in Dunedin we took some time to just relax and enjoy chilling-out for a while, although we chose nice cosy places to visit! Laneway is a great cafe/bar in the centre of Dunedin, down a quiet side lane called Bath Street. It's possibly my favourite place of all to visit. We went inside... Continue Reading →

Light in the Darkness

I liked this light and the texture of the wall, in a cafe in Central Otago that we visited not long before lockdown started in New Zealand. Photo taken by me 22 March 2020. By the way, I've just changed to the new WP editor so am unsure how this post will look compared to... Continue Reading →

That Was Then

Back 'then', Sunday just gone, we went for a drive into Central Otago on a day that just got better and better. We drove over the high country route via Moa Flat and came down into the orchards of Ettrick, then stopped at Turquoise Cafe. I've done a real nice post previously on Turquoise Cafe....

Spec-tacular Giraffe

Very stressy yesterday afternoon, my driver's license had expired and I didn't know if they'd issue me a new one. The eye-test ... looking into the machine what I saw bore no relation to what I was supposed to see. This meant I had to visit an optometrist who was a complete stranger, on the...

This lovely railway-themed tile art adorns the floor of Dunedin Railway Station, New Zealand. I took these photos while waiting to board the Taieri Gorge rail trip on 29 Dec 2019. Also, some nice stained glass windows on the top gallery level in the same space. These railway-themed tile pictures border the outer edge of... Continue Reading →

Small Keepsakes

After cleaning the stained glass lightshade I dealt with the mantelpiece I've been ignoring for ages! What a great opportunity to share with you some of the things that are special to us 🙂 At home in our Tapanui cottage. New Zealand. This metal poppy art is above the fireplace. We bought it just before... Continue Reading →
