…and most aesthetically pleasing roadside power box is in Nelson,
…just adjacent and to the north eastern side of Victory Square park. #gigatownNSN
…is the perfect place to buy locally produced items. And that includes food….mainly a’la fruit and veges, join hundreds of other Nelsonians who do the same thing on their regular weekly visit.
Although it is interesting to note, in the same vein…… that at least one local supermarket, Fresh Choice, has a commitment to do something similar. Good on them I say. #gigatownNSN
me more than it should have …but still it felt good when I spotted it at the lights. But hey, if someone has to do it….the good guy award today goes to Mr Honda.
… Stand Up Paddle-boarders that is, .enjoying the
summer weather down under in Nelson
at NZs “world famous in New Zealand” beach,
Tahunanui Beach. (appears that they were sharing the beach with another exercise group too)
….. they might have
been a bit more …
… than usual?
…especially since these have been a couple of decades in coming to fruition .. but sincerely…..one thing I do lament is the passing of the old “siren” the distinguishing of the old suburb wide “alarm.” Growing up with it, and the Tuesday 7pm siren are …. from now…. consigned to history. Sad thou.
Note the number plates?
…check out how this presenter describes the URL shown on screen, what could possibly go wrong?
Perhaps not real helpful for the visually impaired?
…and locals already know….
where I was..
…and…exactly what I was up to.
Probably one of the most “singularly male “ things….
… that happens here down under. In a real serious “hunter/gather way” sort of way. And there was a result.
One of my best mates Brian smoked up my 2 kahawai and then as I had to rush off to an open home,
I took the risk of leaving them on the kitchen counter.
Luck seemed to favour me this day…because once entering the home after the Open House ….guess what….all was as it was!
The absolutely fabulous….
……smoked fish was still there…and let me tell you it was (using that adjective again) absolutely and simply….in one word…..supremely delicious!!
….yet this vista above is only 420m from the main shoreline on Rocks Road.
And from the centre of Nelson….well from the NCC building to be precise…. its actually just under 2.3km driving/walking to get there to that shoreline point. You could probably swim across then to Haulashore Island as many locals do as part of there “daily exercise regime.”
….but unfortunately business called ……
…looks like they were having fun…
and this is all I got…
….out of a situation that this was taken much earlier in the day.
Am thinking climbing that rigging must be a highlight of a voyage on this beauty.
Hacked off that I missed a “photo opportunity” of a lifetime….but there was more…
I’m talking about the boat “Lord Nelson” in Port Nelson, Nelson and then the fact that around about the same time……our Royal NZ airforce decide to fly a Hercules above on practice approach to Nelson airport.
I’d prefer to call it “timing.”
But because of a phone call I missed that crucial “all in the photo at once” opp!
One thing though is that the whole thing did not mattered to everyone …..
The Lord Nelson has some fantastic ideals for young folk.
Nelson being one of the first NZ Companies settlements in this part of the Antipodes actually owes its name to him said above.
