Elbow, in concert last night at the Powerstation in Auckland. A small venue…up close an personal to a blissful wave of sound and showmanship. Best concert ever, grooving in my own musical nirvana.
These images are from walking the pooches yesterday. I am lucky enough to live in the Wairarapa; in Te Reo (Aotearoa’s indigenous language) this means Glistening Waters.
The Wairarapa is a rural region with lots of diary farming, wine making and creative community projects happening. It is an incredibly beautiful and diverse region. Here I am at Mt Holdsworth- a magical fairy land full of amazing walks. Out there walking pooches.
Red Mango and Murphy went walking and Niwa pooch went to his favourite dog-sitter.
We walked in the magical Mt Holdsworth forest.
An amazing cloud I encountered while cycling to work at the apricot orchard in Kurow, Waitaki Valley, Aotearoa. Gorgeous.
Edited out pooches- so many amazing photos. This is going to be a fun exhibition.
Clutha River Central Otago. A roadside rest stop while cycling Te Waipounamu. Amazing.
This stunning part of our whenua is North Otago, New Zealand. This was a lunch stop during part of my cycle tour of Te Waipounamu. I have been at it all of 2014- continuing on soon. Cycle touring is such an amazing way to see this spectacular country.
Ups to the Canon Powershot for this pic.
this gem of a museum is awesome- go visit if you’re in wellington (it’s free wooohooo). i am sure many would disagree but this wee gem trumps Te Papa Tongarewa for me. it rocks. kids will be into it too (esp the millennium movie- seriously just go there to see this. magical).
niwa’s bliss is with sticks. his favourite place, wairarapa moana.
he is the love of my life.
i have lots to say about him, so will do soon
random wai cow cuteness.
I would love to see photos of and hear about your quirky pooches. do tell.
ups to my ma’s Canon powershot for these.
oh do correct me if that apostrophe is wrong- they get confusing sometimes!
