for the money he got from everyone in the UK for his birthday, it gave him the funds for him to play his new internet game!....he didn't want to go out - we had fush & chups for supper, and he played on his game, and then watched a DVD.

Oh well, maybe next year we'll get him out the house for a pint??????????

my new commute to work

I had to go for my induction this morning, the sun was just rising and I had to try and capture the views as I drove over Awarua Bay, these don't do it justice - it looked better in real life.

So I stopped and got some shots.....


Even the horses love a bit of sunshine on a frosty day, I opened up the back paddock and the horses kicked up their heels.

Although when I took their rugs off the other weekend when the sun was shining down, Jasmine was so pleased that she decided to roll.....

But I think she should have done a risk assesment before rolling in the spot she chose......

Its a shame I didn't get my camera out earlier and video it as she nearly went over on her back, and if she had she would have rolled into the water!

July - sunshine

July 17th, the sun is shining so we went for a walk, the tide was in but that didn't stop us enjoying the views, or a spot of duck watching (well more like we disturbed them napping in the sun and they scaredbejeebers out of me)

We took our wellies (Gumboots to Kiwis) just in case.

Its amazing that it can be a hard frost when you wake up but that the suns beating down on your head by noon.

Rob is talking about getting some Kayaks to
get around on the MokoMoko river.

The water is clear, and we saw a flounder dart past the corner of our eye as we walked in the water.

This is the view of Omaui Hill in the back ground the white dot is Julies house.

Since we couldn't get too far around due to the depth we went to the beach too.

I would love to live at Omaui - shame the internet connection would be non existent, so unless I want to dissapear, its a none starter, but having this for your front view would be great.

There are a few sections for sale, I might see how much they are....watch this space.

The sun always sets on Omaui beach, and it would rise over the Moko Moko river.
