Railway Station and Hotel

Invercargill is at the south end of the South Island of New Zealand. On the other side of the block from the main street, the west side of the inner city, you'll find a very beautiful railway hotel on which sits the elegant wind vane that I showed you in  Wind Vane, Invercargill. Across from... Continue Reading →

Splendid Scooter

Approaching Gore Public Gardens yesterday on my way home I found this scooter parked near the gardens. I was captivated by its decorations, a scooter all decked out for Christmas. What a delight! Bow, baubles, tinsel and Christmas Tree. Gore, Southland, New Zealand. Taken by Liz 20 Dec 2018 MERRY CHRISTMAS AND BEST WISHES FOR... Continue Reading →

Oat Toasting Ovens

I really like the old porridge factory in Gore and on 22 October I wanted a photo featuring the Oat Toasting Ovens side. Nigel and I were both there so we took photos and I also took a photo of the flowers in an island bed of the nearby road intersection with Gore's main street... Continue Reading →

Arrowtown in Spring

I still have photos taken in an Arrowtown residential street from when we visited on 27 October 2018. This was right in the spring blossom time. Here is a lovely cottage with wisteria blooming under the tracery of the verandah and a layer of fallen cherry blossom petals coating the hedge and street verge. On... Continue Reading →

Clock Tower At Night

Gore has a clock tower and Nigel took these photos on Friday night when we left home after seeing there was a lovely full moon in the evening sky. The clock chimes the hours and its only in the last couple of days that I've noticed I can hear the chimes from home, possibly because... Continue Reading →

Which Way Postie

This morning we took a walk from home down to the Mataura River to see the river in flood. We've had almost endless rain since Sunday night until we woke up this morning (Wednesday) to find it had stopped. We were walking across the bridge and had neared the other side when I glanced down... Continue Reading →

Prey, Dance With Me

Yesterday we were in Invercargill and Bluff on a fine but windy day and we had a great time. Took lots of photos. Saw new and interesting things. Just sayin' because I haven't got time to make much of a post just now but thought I'd share this character with you that I found in... Continue Reading →

Worth Getting Up For

"So, early on a January morning in Winnipeg, when I looked out the window to see fog instead of a snowstorm, I was beyond myself. I almost forgot to exchange my bedroom slippers for boots before I was out the door. And then, to add to my pleasure, when I got outside it was warm... Continue Reading →

Which Way: Arrowtown

There's probably nothing that's more iconic of Arrowtown than the row of historic miners' cottages on Buckingham Street. This is a gold rush town and these cottages date back to the 1800s - I'm unsure of the exact date but we'd be talking 1870s to 1880s. Arrowtown, Queenstown Lakes District, New Zealand; photos taken by... Continue Reading →

Arrowtown Delight

Arrowtown is a beautiful old town that dates back to the goldmining days.. so many of these locations in Otago came to life in the days of the goldrush in the 1860s. Arrowtown is near to the resort of Queenstown and is famous for its gold mining history, historic buildings, and fabulous autumn colours. Nevertheless,... Continue Reading →

Walk this way, Drive that way

"Which Way" in Gore. On 22 Oct when we walked over the Mataura River via the highway and pedestrian bridge, Nigel got a close-up of the sign that I usually see from the car. It shows that there's a roundabout (traffic circle) up ahead and to go straight ahead if you're heading into the town... Continue Reading →
