The Glen

Old barn at 
Glenduan Nelson.
A two minute walk to where we used to live "out the Glen" when I was about 5. Nothing much has changed. Good to check out all these old spots.
This is a stones throw from a beautiful rugged smooth rock beach and steep cliffs that drop into the sea.
This is where Glenduan is (might interest family)

Kiwi Icon

The classic corner dairy.
For a few years I thought these were dying out around the country.
But now they are springing up all over the place and even in central city areas.
Now mostly run by indian families they are stocked to the gills with every imaginable snack and saleable thing they can cram in there.
This one in Nelson has been there as long as I can remember.
My mum and her family lived in Haven Road when she was a kid.

Second Hand Dogs

No animals on sale here.

Better Days

Nelson Port Hills.
Would have been a regal home in its day.
I was expecting Herman Munster to appear on the balcony as we walked past.

Candles and Back Doors

Shopping areas back doors always intrigue me for some strange reason.
Such a contrast to the front door customer welcoming facade.
This is pristine compared to most.
 But in the back streets you find all sorts of unusual vendors. 
Here a candle maker displays.

Better Days

I am sure its seen them.
I think this is a Worsley. Love these old junk yard finds.
Not the best neighbours perhaps but this was semi countryside/farm Nelson.

Stunning Architecture....

Seriously though, this is typical of the memorial structures around New Zealand towns.
This one near Glenduan Nelson and I remember it as a small kid.
The down pipe on the left intrigues me. Can't figure out the from and to of it.

So I am in Nelson missing my little mate when this turns up on phone from J's dad.
Made my day...
