The old ship Huia

My grandfather sailed this ship between Australia and New Zealand during the second world war.  He died before I was born, my Dad always told me I would have loved him.  I cherish the fact that I have photos like this to look at and remember that the old days weren't that long ago.

Fun on Pinterest!

An early start to watch some riveting container loading at Wellington's wharf, I did enjoy the morning light silhouettes.

Villa in the Vines

Ten minutes walk from the centre of Martinborough is the delightful 1910 cottage Villa in the Vines.  This place really has character & a great garden to match.

Old Coast Road Church

This cute old church on Wainuiomata's Old Coast road was built in 1866. We visited to see our distant relatives graves.  I couldn't help but try and imagine what it would have been like here 100 years ago.  Isolated and wild are two words that pop to mind.

Browny on the path

Today I met my first frog at home

While moving a pot of succulents in the garden I pulled a dead leaf away & a blur of brown lept from the middle of the pot onto the path. I wasn't expecting company & got quite a fright. He seemed a bit stunned and just sat there still as anything while I took a few photos.

We've been hearing a 'weeeeep-eeep-eeep-eeep-eeep-eeep' sound for months now thinking it was most likely frogs. So it's nice to see one and confirm we have brown frogs hanging around. I'd hoped they would be native but they were introduced into New Zealand in 1875.

Marlborough sounds from a caravan!

Caravan being a type of Cesna aircraft with fabulously large windows making panorama photos possible.  Such a beautiful area of NZ to fly over, the colour of the sea always amazes me.
