so, the rain stopped and the holidays are drawing to a close, and i thought i'd drag the little darlin's out for a fashion parade...errr...walk...
this is actually a stream, but after over an inch of rain in the past 24 hours, it was a torrent - in 24 years i've never seen it like this. it was positively roaring!
the ducks didn't seem to mind tho this is actually an old magazine. not people and ok!, but with real rifles'n'stuff. it's one of wellington's oldest stone buildings - i only found that out TODAY!!!
click and enlarge to read if you're interested!
so we finally arrive at the organic grocer - 100% good for us!
and after all that walking, we needed sustenance! now, before you say 'my god, that's spinach - she's a total health nut. i hate her' - keep scrolling down and see what was sitting just off-camera
oh yeah - that's what i'm talkin' about. if music is the laughter of the soul, then chocolate is like, my total reason for being. how good does that look. go ahead, enlarge it. i did share some with the midgets - some. the rest was all mine, and it was goooooooood. and that's yoghurt with it, not cream, which makes it like totally non-calorific.
some of the local wildlife
that's the train track cut out of the side of the hill (the brown patch) and the water down the bottom is the stream. that's the way we came thru the bush
time for a quick swing on the way home at the local park
i really like this picture! that's the tv aerial on mt kau kau and we live up on that hill (somewhere)
nearly home! up the hill...
up the drive...
then up the steps...
sometimes those steps are the straw that breaks the camel's back!
we made it!
8km round trip (that's 5 miles to you north americans out there)
thanks for coming along!
'match that child' mini GIVEAWAY as yet unsolved.
