well actually the weather spot with Jim it was…
…however considering he probably gets 100 photos a day ,its still nice to know he considered it a contender.
…as most Nelsonians know we are around about 24hrs away from finding out who wins The Block NZ 2013.
And particularly of interest to Nelsonians, is that out of the 4 couples competing with their 4 separate and individual homes, is Loz & Tom Heaphy from Nelson.
Well here’s something that I personally thought was very interesting.
Ruby, who is Loz’s grandmother read out this poem to a training session my wife attended recently, but she only told me about it today. And really - you deserve it to yourself to read. I thought it quite profound.
And on behalf of Nelsonians for tomorrow, Wednesday night, go Loz & Tom!!!!
when they arrived this morning.
Support vessel Pacific Ranger putting on quite
the show with her water cannons.
And in comparison to yesterdays webcam shot….
She certainly fills the picture waterside, in this webcam shot from Port Nelson.
And courtesy of the hills around town there were plenty of great vantage points
to watch the proceedings.
And it seems film them too.
Some it would seem, had a grandstand view!
you might have noticed that Port Nelsons webcam
does not show any large ship tied up…
just too windy it would seem
to risk coming through The Cut at present, although most units are still out there, a window might still be available later this afternoon.
taking their photos…first was this guy taking the….
appropriately named “healthy box” into a brand new Nelson gym.
And the second chap…well from a distance I did not see him….
but at 60x zoom, its quite obviously he saw me.
Actually really concentrating on this series of pics, this chap must have asked another guy because it appears they have different coloured shirts?
A long weekend seems as good an excuse
as any for 80+ Morris Minis
(some of their later ….
….BMW brethren are here to)
to get together ..
…and chat about cars.
Well Minis actually…
and a couple of others too?
Did you know that these Mokes
are about to make a comeback?
And our own Nelson bred …….
…..World Speed Record Mini was there in person for all to view too.
Included was a story about how it started….
Even closed off the top of Trafalgar St for this display.
…before you’ll see as many superlatives / cliches thrown around Nelson in one day again…
...or then again maybe again in 12mths time? Entertainment starts tonight at 5:45pm and the main match kicks off at 7:35pm.
