Work Out History
Big decision for me. Decided to dump 24 years of work out history (Cycle, Weights, Tramps, Walks, MTB etc)
Usually at least 6 to 8 a week.
So decided to take a picture of the diaries for the record. Don't count them please as a couple have extra years included so they represent at least 24 years.
I still keep this going today. Will dump at the end of each year from now on. Trying to declutter.....
Jett from Sydney Australia. Came with his mum and dad to see the family here in cold old Tauranga NZ.
A lovely little fella and a little bit shy.

We went rock hopping right up the river today and it was beautiful. I had the camera and G was keen for few "shots" for her portfolio!

HOT Pink Walk Tauranga
A celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an outreach to the community. (from the HOT Pink Walk web site)
The women from Altex got behind this great cause and hit the road in style with hundreds of girls from around the district.
Many of us have had very close family taken by breast cancer. My wifes mum was one of these. It was a grueling, unpleasant and ultimately sad process. That was years ago now and luckily there are better treatments and management protocols along with fantastic publicity like this walk to tell the stories of survival and early detection.

Trees In Transit
Old & New
New buildings snuggle alongside ones decades older in downtown Tauranga.
Some attempt has been made to make the new fit with the old. I just liked the picture potential.

Logging Trucks Circa Late '60s/70s
I found this old photo on the wall of Tokoroa cafe. Taken at the Kinleith Tokoroa Pulp & Paper mill (maybe the saw mill) Things have changed!

This is the common large black and white shag. But this is a subspecies that is unique to NZ owing to the different head pattern and yellow (not orange) markings.

100kph Wind Gusts
Last weeks high winds nearly got right inside our lounge when a large fond from the palm tree out front smashed into the window. Duct taping in high winds is something to experience especially when you are being pelted with flying debris.
And this boat ashore in Pilot Bay
