Last Days of Summer

Shot on the same day as Ben's two posts, at lunch time Friday Feb 2, which was for many kids the last day of the summer holiday. There were bleachers on both sides and lots standing around, so a great turnout for a small town.

Shops in Nelson change/morph so often and so rapidly last few ears I don't know what this place is going to be and don't recall what it was just before, or at one time. It's between the music shop and Molly's, which used to be a fab cafe and then a groovy takeaway, last century. It's on Bridge, near Four Spirits Corner, where there used to be, I understand, a church and three pubs. The corner has had a bed shop, a supermarket, and two pubs as long as I can remember.

Missed the Simpsons

I noticed the sky looked like the start of The Simpsons cartoon show, (really simple blue and yellow,) but I couldn't find the camera and by the time I came back to the living room, I was too late.

We had dramatic weather up and down the country today due to ex-Tropical Cyclone Fehi.  In  Nelson, two iconic waterfront properties were damaged. More may come to light tomorrow. Elsewhere there were fires due to drought conditions declared/extended earlier in the week. This summer certainly has been extreme, with January the hottest ever recorded. Much of the country could not see the full blue-blood moon, as I understand, because it was too soon to this storm, and high tide tonight at 11.20 PM may cause some more flooding.
