Helicopters were still at it.....

Reports in the paper and on the web indicate it was quite a fire, some folks being evacuated, with one home succumbing to the flames. Most of the firefighters and helicopters were working through Thursday night into Friday morning.

Smoke on...ok....over the Water

Aotearoa mural at Port Nelson

One of Nelson's landmarks is this mural painted by Christopher Finlayson back in the mid 1980's.
To this day its probably one of the most photographed spots in town, and as you can see from the photo she's just had a new paint job.

Nelsons only Railway Line

At Founders Park ~ there's talk of extending this line towards the centre of town ~ something I can only hope does indeed happen!
