Just Lewi

This little guy is very engaging and simply into everything.
When he visits it takes 4 adults in defence positions all evening.
He smiles all the time except not at my camera.

An amazing creation 

 Lewi is a big boy now. He is stepping out.

From The Old Album

Circa 1955
Not exactly sure here family. But this is just before we left Nelson for Tauranga or just after we arrived here.
L to R
Me, young Ken, big sister Lyn AKA Gidge and Rocky the dog.
Not sure if I was very approving of Ken pulling the dogs hair..typical
Circa 1958/9
Me second from the left with some of my mates from Otumoetai.
Looks like we built a sandcastle. Just a Km away from where we live now.

Good News

Fergusson Park Last Night

Looking west from the park up the Tauranga harbour toward the Kaimai range.
It was a beautiful evening. 14th of may and over 20deg C at around 6pm. Where is winter?
Lights on the water at dusk
 At the Matua ramp. Looks dangerous!

 One last dive for dinner

Hell Hole of the Pacific

The Duke of Marlborough Hotel
Russell Bay of Islands
A beautiful old hotel. Pristine condition and great people.

 Its worth reading the history of Russell
Must have been something else!
Having a relaxing beer out on the deck while we check out the menu
 Some inside shots that capture the feel of the Hotel.

 Believe it or not there were a lot of people around.

A Few Shots Form Russell

I could not resist this shot. Many of us grew up with the four square guy.
Nearly time to go back to Paihia
The guy with the best office in the world
 An old cannon with a story

 Such a beautiful end to the day.
