Usually this is what we are used to….

but this past weekend, well…….

_DCL5291

it was different.

_DCL5285

Seems that quite few folk had the same thoughts……

_DCL5314

..and those thoughts….

_DCL5296

get going now…… better yet…..

_DCL5321

……..get out in front of anyone with similar thoughts!

_DCL5308

Even if you didn’t have something that was artificially powered

_DCL5292

I mean by petrol or diesel it would seem.

_DCL5312

……….courtesy of the white stuff on the top of the hills, like Mt Arthur……it seemed winter actually had arrived…..

_DCL5318

….but lets not let that spoil the fun on the water….

_DCL5305

….while it lasts.

_DCL5299

This is Nelson after all.

_DCL5341

But when the heavy traffic artillery arrives….

_DCL5356

and traverses The Cut….

_DCL5430

then its usually for a very good reason……

_DCL5464

….and yes size does have something to do with it?

BUT see that’s the real advantage living here….because as this official Port Nelson shipping schedule (aka "timetable") shows you….there really is at least 97% of the time in each day where you are free to come and go via The Cut…..which it seems most people this past weekend were well and truly aware of?
