…won an auction for a budget old timer, wanting to stick my Canon Point & Shoot on it and set camera to timelapse mode, …see what happens….and for $5, thought it was worth trying out anyway. Guess the xray scanners at the mail centre had other ideas….? Result - package delayed.

…and some folk got high.
and just FYI…
the jump off point is near on 600m above sea level
and the trip down to the Ngawhatu Reserve is around 2.75km.

….while I was on the way to town for an appt this morning….I look out towards the sea…and….
…am left wondering if another craze started….… down-under in Nelson, New Zealand?
Sure got to say I hadn’t ever heard of this before?
Not surprising though, considering this is #gigatownNSN after all isn’t it?

…and why not…
…..our dog loved this place, in fact I think she liked it more than Isel Park.
And it doesn’t take anymore than parking your vehicle at the end of Parkers Rd (Google will help you here) to be able to take monster advantage of all this beach so close to the tarseal!

….one of Nelsons most iconic ole buildings is going to look a lot different…..soon…
From me to you…(whoever you are chap) thank you. I say “chap” because ….
I saw you a few days ago up on the scaffolding. Thank you again for bringing a real part of ole Nelson back to life, Happy New Year to you too.
…trying to explain to you how neat it was down The Sounds Sunday…
but let me tell you there was only two causalities in the whole day…
and they were both of the same breed. Two hats….not held down enough…
luckily one was rescued via hook and sinker but the other one…oh dear gone forever ….

over the holiday break…
…..but let me tell you this sure was not normal
for NZs most decorated Sunshine capital.
Vs the UK…well heres a comment?
In fact don’t take it just from me.
Turns out NZ had the warmest winter ever in 2013, and according to stats….the 2nd warmest year on record.
Puts a bit of perspective (no disrespect intended) onto how others are being treated this Northern Hemisphere winter I suggest?
I suggest reading further - a substantiated and not exactly inconsequential figure has been provided;
After compiling data from 22 land stations and three islands, Dr Salinger said that he found the annual mean temperature was nearly one degree higher than average.
Wow that’s a serious figure as far as world wide terms are considered. (Google it to chk the facts)
Considering what's happening to the world wide weather….your window to buy a property in what some are suggesting might become the Southern Hemispheres new “Mediterranean” is really and truly ….& quite literally …..slowly disappearing! But hey there can be REAL advantages too!!!!
