random bits of NZ

This is a redoubt tower at Manaia. Click to learn more.


The DOC did a wonderful job making an accessibility ramp up to  Wilkies Pools








'The Vicarage' in New Plymouth, built in 1845.

I took this photo in 2009, but....

it looks rather vintage in  black and white.

Every picture seems better - and more inviting - than the last.
First time in a very long time - I've felt the urge to pack up and go for an adventure. - Have you driven across that bridge???

Yikers - that's amazing.

...Betty, what a lovely journey that you just took me on. Perhaps we are kindred souls.

Great collections of photos. I found the Route 66 sign a bit odd. Have a great weekend.

What a great series! Reading about the redoubt was very interesting. I giggled at the cow and llama (at least I think it is a llama). Happy Friday!

Oh, my goodness, if a person cannot find something they like in this post, then they must be crazy. I have just thoroughly enjoyed these photos...love it when you post a bunch. I do love the one in B&W...it looks like it could have been taken years ago. I love 'The Vicerage!--just totally love it. And love the photo above it, too...oh, I just love them all really.

You've captured the perfect sunburst. I also love the mural and mailboxes. The cow is the best!

I like the tuatara mural. Your black and white image is quite vintage.

Even the cars look like they belong in a photo much older! Did you stumble on a movie being filmed? Wow. Like a step back in time for sure. Very cool, I love this.

The canyon is awesome, the old house is cute and I like the road 66. The post boxes are super.... and all photos are wonderful, thanks for sharing.

Very interesting set 0f photos, if you had said you took a photo of the old vicarage in the UK I would have believed you, same style of building and stone.
Take care, Gordon.
