This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

New Zealand 11

People in shorts and singlets, parties at the beach. Christmas in summer, it looks and feels different.

Many decorated, well maintained old-timers at the X-mas parade in Tutukaka

The weekly arts and crafts market at Whangarei's Townbasin.

There was a little white dog, called Benton chasing these Pukeko's, but he got lost in the process.

Rock 'n Roll around the harbor

Art displays in the park along the river. It all looks quite different from 18 years ago, Whangarei. Well done!

Harbor views

And more arty scenes at the Quarry, always worth a visit.

What a dragon! Specialty of the year? I wonder if the creator was Asian...


Just remembered my first photography classes here.

Not a blood-colored Pohutekawa, but a purple Jacaranda, equally impressive.
