Day 145 May 24th 2016

A little bit of a cheat today as I didn’t take any photos. However,  the new sculpture in Hamilton was in the news and since I took a photo of it at the weekend I thought it worth sharing.
Apparently ‘The waterfall of the sculpture represents the tongue of the dog, described in a Maori legend about the creation of the Waikato River.’ 
My photo doesn’t show the waterfall as it was taken before it was unveiled. Will have to go and take another this weekend.

Day 136 May 15th 2016

It is hard to believe that only a few weeks away from the shortest day it is still warm enough to sit outside for breakfast.  Nigel and I went for a gentle stroll around the beautiful Hamilton Gardens this morning which means that I have heaps of photos to choose from today. Too many!  So this one is my pick just because it sort of represents history.  All the others are in our Flickr stream.

Day 78 March 18th 2016

Balloons over Waikato -an iconic Hamilton festival. Timed my walk beautifully this morning… Ever seen a flying elephant (except for Dumbo)?  I have.  A still,  warm morning,  perfect for lazily floating balloons although some did seem to be struggling to stay up.
