First race of the season, and another year older

This week was my Birthday, the second without Mum, always sheds a slightly sad tinge over it. Still, I was taken out for a lovely meal by Mark, and got a GoPro as a birthday present (purchased last week). 310 more words

Phoneography Challenge: Nature

Good morning from a warmer and calmer day.  Yesterday was very stormy all over the North Island.  We had a lot of heavy wind and rain again and a small earthquake in the afternoon as well which I didn’t feel, so it can’t have been a big one.   176 more words


Chilham circular

One of our walks from May 2013 -

We did invest in basic walking kit, however, Linda & I were caught on the hop this time, the forecast wasn’t great, so we layered up but also made the mistake of wearing jeans…way to hot when the sun came out, together with the more strenuous stomps uphill, causing us to overheat..big time !  928 more words


Photo Friday: Be Soft

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. – Kurt Vonnegut
