Wind Beneath My Wings

I spotted a sailing ship wind vane as we walked from Port Chalmers town to Iona Church. Dunedin, New Zealand.

Higher Ground

Iona Church sits above the town of Port Chalmers, Dunedin, New Zealand. "Iona’s 8-day turret clock was installed in 1885 by Littlejohn and Co of Wellington." [...] "Although the time is pretty accurate, strong winds can and have been known to stop the hands, making timekeeping a little harder in the face of a good... Continue Reading →

Middlemarch Cycles

The Taieri Gorge Railway trip we did on 29 December 2019 was a return trip from Dunedin to Middlemarch, a country town way out on the outer edge of Dunedin and almost into Central Otago. We had 45 minutes at our disposal and had time to walk to a favourite cafe as well as take... Continue Reading →

Sharing a couple of photos that Nigel took this morning. I also took photos but haven't got them off my camera yet. Nigel dubbed... Continue Reading →

Imperial Buildings, Dunedin NZ

Really loved this old commercial building as soon as I saw it. The architectural details and the interesting fire escapes. Wasn't the best time of day for photography and it's on a street corner so not much room to manoeuver, but what a fascinating place. Dunedin, New Zealand. Photos taken 07 Dec 2019. Built 1906....

Southern Heart

This 'heart' map of the far south of the South Island of New Zealand was displayed on a wall in our motel unit when we stayed in Dunedin last weekend. It shows most of the locations that I mention in my blogs. We stayed in the  Commodore Motel, right next to the botanic gardens -... Continue Reading →
