Even as a youngster….I always wondered…


…after reading too many adventure books I think….what it would have been like running away to sea…


…and on nights like tonight…I wonder where these folk will wake up in a weeks time?

Bit of irony in the name ...


of the little boat here.

Good sign for the start of voting in…


the gigatown competition. Rainbow over Tahunanui this am.

Perhaps Nelson has too much sunshine…

16-11-2014 sunshine NOW

out taking photos of homes for sale this afternoon in this perfect weather….when I spot a few locals enjoying it a bit more than what I’d term normal? Keg and all….?

On Main Road Stoke!

Currently about 10nm out from Port Nelson…


but soon to be parked up…Jens Maersk & crew about to enjoy the rest of the day in our part of the world.


Impressive feats at yesterdays annual Truck Show…


in Stoke.


And I think  the move to this location (while it lasts because a shopping centre is being constructed here) was a good one too.
