Work Happens…


..well in Australasia's largest fishing port


there is just so much happening, especially when one of these


larger beasts show up on the slipway. They don’t want to be there for long…


…surely…as “time is money when you are this size. So Nelson, Port Nelson does its bit…to get them back out to sea as quick as is safely possible.

Was this your Nelson child…

this morning….10th June 2014….well because as it could just as well as happened…

…one seriously lucky young man this morning…

…this morning that he might not have been home tonight ... but for someone driving cautiously…and sort of expecting the stupid things kids do!

I think, from memory, it is until they are 21 that they are invincible!!! Very near miss and the video does not do justice to how close I was and had to slam on the brakes! He just kept on biking - didn’t even see me…and I’m not even driving a Prius!

It got some comments alright…



…when I commented that NZs so called “rock-star” economy has had a not inconsiderable boost nationwide from the amount of business that “earthquake strengthening” has required. these photos above are of just some downtown sites in Nelson. #gigatownNSN

In the heart of Stoke…


is historic Broadgreen House & Gardens, and adjacent this is Samuels Rose Garden, an ideal relaxing place to spend 15-30minutes on your next visit to the area.
