In case you missed it this week…. Kite Surf Nelsons shopkeeper out having some fun with friends…when…
….just another day in Nelson, story here..from front page of Mondays Nelson Mail.
….you spot a “weekend car” that matters.
And….the original Japanese supercar certainly is right up there….. numero uno …..I suggest.
Actually I wouldn’t think there would really be too many in this pristine “going” condition in NZ.
So spotting one of these in the neighbourhood this week restored my faith in what a local garage may harbour.
..surprisingly enough little ole Nelson town,
it does offer that too.
A desire to “be beside the seaside” can most definitely be achieved here.
And the views from your balcony….
or a local restaurant…
well lets just say…
they would be hard to beat in many modern towns today!
arrives in Tasman Bay. Having left Australia in recent times, the FV Abel Tasman (formerly “Margiris” ….maybe again now???) ,
the headline seeking vessel appears to be making its way? into Port Nelson? CREDIT IMAGE ABOVE – Wikipedia
UPDATE 21st March 2013
The now named “Margiris” again did not visit the Port yesterday like it appeared it might,
it spent the day traversing back and forth in the Bay, there was some discussion regarding leaving Port Lincoln for engine trials, so that could of explained the vessels presence here.
As of this morning she was off the south east coast of the North Island, travelling in what looked like a northerly direction.
to the centre left and Bishopdale centre of photo. You can just make out Waimea Rd in the middle. Decided to help someone push their car to start last night after leaving a property viewing….that’s when I felt a “twang” like a rubber band snap in my lower leg……hence a visit last night to the place on the right….Nelson Hospital.
Upper left side is Panorama Drive, Enner Glynn with the newer homes built up their enjoying some of the better vistas available locally.
With up to 18 more seats than the 50 seats of Air Nelsons current crop of 23 x Q300’s, Air New Zealands brand new ATR72-600s are currently being delivered.
Black Beauty here was the first plane delivered of the new bunch of 12 the airline has ordered,
…. and to commemorate got this fabulous paint job. has recently seen commencing deliveries.
Very fast turnaround this afternoon too. I spotted her and one of the older ATR72-500s sharing the Nelson Airport tarmac this afternoon, so its quite obvious that Air NZ is increasing capacity into and out of Nelson.
in recent times….
a series of exercise stations…
…..have been placed …..
….around the perimeter…..
…..of the Nelson Airport walk.
As I have mentioned before…
Its quite a peaceful walk really as dogs and bicycles aren’t allowed…..
…..just pedestrian …..
….and stroller traffic that’s all
