    Lovely photos so far all, good to see a mixture of stuff that's good to look at and stuff you've been doing.
    Today I went to Browns Island with a friend who is trying to knock off every volcano in Auckland. He needed a boat for Browns so we press-ganged my partner into taking us. I managed to sit on the wet side of the boat in both directions. Browns has a pretty interesting history, and despite looking smooth from the mainland, it's really lumpy, with maybe half a metre of kikuyu in parts. On the way back we idled near Bean Rock so I could get this. I have done some modifications in Photoshop (rotate, levels, black & white) but the sky did look pretty much as you see it here.

    That would be excellent--but I don't want to presume, if you were thinking of organising another Auckland event,

    I drove out to the lookout at Port Chalmers yesterday and had a look around.

    Great shot Carol.

    Operating without upload facilities, so will have to post a link. Hmm, not sure that's gonna work.

    I had a wonderful daytrip down to the Catlins today. Here's some pictures from Curio Bay and the petrified forest.

    Say hullo to the De Luxe Theatre for me. There is a proposal to reconstruct and install a 1915 Wurlitzer Photoplayer in the auditorium next year.

    Love this picture.

    Thanks Cecelia! Great Opotiki shots, Jos.
    So the weather came right today and we went over the new motorway bridge at Jacob's Ladder. It's a nice piece of civic architecture, encompassed by a big pohutukawa at one end and opening out onto views of the marina at the other. Wandered down to Wynyard from there. It's really becoming something down there. Almost like a big city!

    The path on the St Mary's Bay side is great too. It just needs properly connecting with the street at the Pt Erin end. I must find out who can make that decision.

    Yesterday for the 3rd day in a row – we had a large canine houseguest, and exhausted dogs is the only way to stay sane – we went to Kakamatua for the third day in a row. Blinder of a day, very hot and sunny, and consequently the light was completely different.

    3) Black dogs and ears

    Great Carol. Can't believe they opened it and didn't invite Jonathan, Sophie and I! We've practically been camping out waiting. We'll have to do another trip soon.

    Meanwhile, good day for the gardens, eh?

    Catching up on ealier posts, Kia ora Islander. Thanks for being here, and Happy New Year.

    Geoff, hopefully that weekend of 2nd could work. School starts on 4th for one of ours, so we'll definitely be around. Would be great to catch up again. Also, see you at Elvis.

    It sounds like the opening itself was a bit of a shambles. There was supposed to be food laid on, but there was a problem with the caterers and everyone, Nikki Kaye included, stood around for a long time waiting for things to happen.

    What we've been doing in the holidays: surf school at Scarborough every day for the boys. It's a grand thing watching my two teenagers discover their passion; they came ashore the first day with that look of "I know what life is really about".
