Mapua Again

A view from the Mapua wharf. The Smoke House restaurant (blue, far right in yesterday's post) was used in the recent Air New Zealand commercial.

Due to a death in the family, we're off to Japan. We hope to resume posting when we return.

Theme Day: Best Photo of The Year 2008

This was the best photo in a series of four posts about the oil rig that visited Nelson. The original post of this image was on 17 July. The rig first first appeared on 31 May; subsequently it was on 9 August and 27 September. Following the last post, it was just outside the bay still visible from Rocks Road because the weather condition was still bad; apparently these rigs require three or four days of calm water to move on safely. The rig has not returned so I guess it's finally really gone.

Happy New Year, everyone!
