Black & White Days

Not the first time I have put this pic on my blog.
Taken in Otumoetai some time in the 50's
My bro on the right me on the left. I am guessing I would be around 6 or 7.
Five years between us.

6am 25th April 2019
Cenotaph Mt Maunganui
A very large crowd attended. A beautiful morning. As usual I had to choke back my emotions as I thought about my dad. 3 years overseas in WW2 in the NZ Army in Italy and North Africa and his return home in fairly poor shape after all that time away. Meanwhile my mum was in the W.A.A.C serving in New Zealand defense force.

Jay Four Today AND Easter


This made me look twice. This is Whangarei.
In Tauranga $2 buys you one hour parking!
 I started Easter Sunday with a 11/2 hour bike ride around some of our awesome city tracks.
 Then home to see the kids who came for a visit.
This is Lewi trapped inside the stacked goals on the park.
 And this is Jay, 4 years old today.
Jay with his bug gun
And this cute little studio nestled down by the harbour and hidden away on the eastern end of First Avenue Tauranga.
You never know whats around the corner if you just get out and explore.

Scrap Yard

Just waiting for the chop.
I would imagine this old trawler would have a few stories to tell.

Waterfront, The Strand.
