…one of the best I’ve seen in a while?
Probably protects the contents better than a pack too? And definitely safety points for approaching from behind traffic too.
to visit this place when its operational. The chief controller on duty kindly sent an invite to me the other day to pop by for a visit.
And I really did want to take some extra photos (as those who know me,….know I am want to do?) but apparently “protocol” comes into play. (Those guys definitely have the best “close up” view in Nelson)
Still was great to meet the folk there and see what an incredibly stellar job they are doing.
One second we are having a conversation, and with-in the second (actually I think it was prolly part of a second if I’m honest about it) he had spun around … sat down … picked up something that looked like a normal “old school phone” handset” and started talking in, …in well lets just say a different language to you and me, for sure.

Yes, I can answer, its called Nelson, New Zealand?
….well other than of course its called Saturday…(these are pics from 2010)
….in our part of the world…well we are world famous in NZ for our annual Kite Festival…
something that has been going on …
…for upteen years. In fact its New Zealands longest running ever Kite Festival. And 2015’s Festival kicks of tomorrow, and continues into Sunday.
…well…it turns out a few more people know about this fav local summer swimming spot than last year!
Maybe TripAdvisor or something has got word out ….anyway part of the popularity is most surely because this spot …… its just 2m off the main highway!
…when I first began working in tech (1989) if someone had told me that with-in a short number of years…..
….someone with a camera that costs less than $300 would …
…be able to take photos like this….….well…I’d have been stunned!
