Things Ya Do

So this is a few of us from work (second from right our American visitor, Howard, and we are at the top of the Sky tower in Auckland.
However, while we did go to the top of the tower and enjoy a light meal we never had this shot taken there.
The very entrepreneurial photographers as you go into the facility at the foot of the tower took the real shot and then created this.

A Hand Up Please Dad

4x4 Fun

So these shots arrived from my young (now old) sister in the Waikato where she and her hubby Rob own a really nice cattle farm with quite a lot of bush.
I thought they worked hard and it was all just grind until I looked at these... 
I never got an invite to what looks like a hell of a lot of fun.


Adults Only

I was a little shocked to see this old poster on the wall of an Auckland restaurant.
I had to ask a friend to take a picture of it with her phone. The theme was during WW2 if I recall.
Hope its not overly offensive (Historical). Not something we might see today.

Winter View Tasman Bay

We were lucky enough to visit Nelson mid winter this year again.
So we took to the streets and hills on foot just to prove we can still do it after our 40 years of visits.
This is Rob (my girl) at the look out on the Rocks Road hills look out.
Tasman Bay is in the background with the very ugly car ferry heading on its way after unloading another pile of cars at the port.

Exercise Gear

Very cool this.
Public exercise equipment alongside the Maitai river in Nelson.
Not easy to see in this shot but there are several body weight workouts to be had.
I noticed runners (regulars) would stop bye and do a quick round of the workouts and run on their way.
What impressed me most was that the gear was not trashed despite being in place for many months.
