This is a first for Nelson Daily Photo in 5+ years of posting. This photo was not taken by either of us, but by an unknown gentlemen seated at the back row of the VIP bleacher.
The very first Rugby game was reenacted at the Botanic Reserve yesterday. By the time yours truly arrived at the Reserve, after seeing the Haka on the Cathedral Steps in yesterday's post, suffice it to say there was standing room only without the requisite connection/invitation to certain areas. After circling around the field twice, I didn't see much other than back of pants, shirts and heads. So I asked a gent to take a few shots to show the atmosphere of the place.
More information here and here.

Today we have Italy vs Russia game on Nelson. At noon, we have this Haka demonstration by nelson College boys and leading to the "Re-enactment" of the historical game.
Nelson is the birthplace of New Zealand Rugby Game in 1870 when Charles Monro returned from his schooling in England with a new game to show the locals.
When you go to the Trafalgar Park tonight, enjoy and be safe.

In addition to the more famous commemorations worldwide, today marks six months from the quake, tsunami and the start of the nuclear catastrophe in Northern Japan. We worry winter is fast approaching to that very cold region.

We discuss Theme Day themes a lot, though the onus is almost always on Ben to go get the shots, and his take is almost always different from mine. And since I am over 25cm shorter than him, we can't help looking at the world with different perspectives, can we?
