Winter Cheer

Yesterday we made an afternoon trip to Invercargill and spent some time at Queens Park. Winter has arrived and it's been wet and cold for days on end - grey cloud, drizzle and rain. It felt wonderful to get out of the car for a walk in the park and find that even in winter... Continue Reading →

Clever Costume

Four Square is an iconic brand in New Zealand, a national network of grocery stores easily recognised by the colourful number four and the "four square man" always on display. I was just reading at the  Four Square website  that "Four Square turns 95 in 2019 - having been founded in 1924". This afternoon we... 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 →

Postmasters House in Clyde

I shared with you how much we enjoyed visiting the Post Office Cafe & Bar in Clyde, Central Otago. While I was checking out the garden bar I noticed a sign on a garden gate about accommodation next door. I enquired at the cafe about it and found the prices very reasonable. Now bear in...

Three Things in Tapanui

These three things in Tapanui particularly caught my attention when we were there on Sunday afternoon, 18 March 2018. I've already posted about the Chevrolet Impala SS and that was the biggie but I enjoyed finding these others too. I found a plain and variegated native Griselinia growing right next to each other in a... Continue Reading →
