  • Julie Cross,

    You know, this feels like I've walked through a hidden door in the street and discovered an ever so slightly random exhibition of photos that keeps growing matrix-like, and I'm wandering around overhearing fascinating conversations and brushing shoulders with gorgeous folk and it's just GLORIOUS. a triple treat alright.

    Jackson Bay. Nice tree, nice place. Seems to co-exist OK with an embedded cabbage tree.

    Joe – is that south or north>? It doesnt matter-
    What a wonderful life- enhancing tree!

    O, and trees just sort it out among themselves-

    Islander, that’s the REAL Jackson Bay. From a Big O perspective, you know, as South as you can drive on the Coast.

    Neat mate! I was trying to work out the baches-we call it Jackson’s
    but you can drive MUCH further south -think where we buryed Henry Buck-
    (if you & yours want to be entertained by me please contact soonish – I will be gone this coming year-)

    PAS can be a bit like that, Julie. And if you're brave enough to ever come to anything where we get together offline, you can make the feeling manifest!

    Nice tree, nice place.

    Great photo. But I would say that. ;-)

    Pretty cool, eh? Jackie's right too. Used to find this place a little intimidating, then I met most of the people here, and now... no wait, one or two are still a little intimidating. So damned clever.

    Maybe we could have an Australian chapter meeting? There's a few over there. Although not as many as seem to live in this little part of Auckland. I'm surrounded!

  • Geoff Lealand,

    Jackson's Bay. My beloved and I once biked all the way down there from Nelson, to visit Les Cleveland who had (may still have) a bach at Neil's Beach (a little burg just shy of Jackson's). One of the most interesting places down there is the graveyard of those who died in the failed attempt to establish a settlement in the c19th--large Southern Beech growing up through twisted wrought iron grave surrounds.
    On our way there, we camped under the
    bridge at Haast, not realising it couldhave been where the body of Jennifer Beard was found. Spooky!

    the whole West Coast is "spooky" - that's why I love it, and my heart yearns for it. It must be almost 30 years since I was on that coast, and it saddens me. The entire landscape seems to shrug it's shoulders at human invaders - grand, and majestic, that mist, those mountains, that primeval forest. Love it.

    Completely irrelevant, but I feel like I have to go this far away from you guys today. I'll be back later just like this Airport in Dubai. I'll be back there again. it really is a gateway to so many parts of the world. Quite an interesting place.

    Hey Julie Cross, I like your analogy.

  • Julie Cross, in reply to Jackie Clark,

    Thanks for the invite Jackie. Maybe I can coincide a trip across the ditch one day. And your comment about the West Coast being spooky... My ancestors from Prussia thought they were on a boat heading to America, but they were swindled and arrived at Greymouth. Mutiny and refusal to get off the boat and they were transported to Taranaki instead. Must have been the spookiness they could see. I recognised it when I made my own excursion down that way.

    And Sophie, I've realised most galleries let the photos speak for themselves, and well, they kinda mumble or speak in tongues. Here the words are mighty fine.

    Pretty much impossible to get PASers to shut up. ;-)

    For you book people .. Guardian obit of the much loved Russell Hoban.

    Yeah, I noticed that. I've only read one I think, some time back. Perhaps this will inspire me to hunt for others.

    Turtle Diary was his most accessible.

  • Lilith __,

    Turtle Diary was great. And I’ve still got a copy of The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz. Oh and I liked Come Dance With Me. I think those are the only ones I’ve read.

    ETA: Oh, How Tom Beat Captain Najork and his Hired Sportsmen and A Near Thing for Captain Najork were his as well! 2 of my favourite children’s stories ever! I have them in a very battered back-to-back edition.

    Best you track down Kleinzeit, Lilith. It is all kinds of awesome.
    And if you enjoyed Hoban's children's books you might enjoy William Steig as well..

    pining for a book thread? Moi?

    Thanks Carol, I will put that on my list! And it sounds like I should read Riddley Walker, too.

    Just don't mention Prime Mincer
    and John Key in the same sentence...

    Prime Mincer

    How does that line in The Birdcage go?

    "Walk more like John Wayne!.....Oh."

    "No good?"

    "Actually, it's perfect. I just never realized John Wayne walked like that."

    Nice line Jackie.

    I have been to places where the landscape does more than shrug its shoulders it says very strongly " this place is not for humans" piss off.

    Glorit just north of Kaukapakapa .
