permalink In all my years in New Zealand, I’d never climbed that massive hill at Castlepoint; just admired it from afar at the lighthouse end of the point. No more.

permalink There’s nothing like an MX-5 for driving in New Zealand. Castlepoint was great today, but the road there & back…even better.

permalink Took this at the races in Tauherenikau on Jan 2 this year - I like it because it kinda sums everything up from that day.  He’s got a new suit (with a bit too much stuff in the pockets, and the tag still on the sleeve), she’s got a glass of wine AND a bottle of water, there’s money coming out of his wallet, they’re checking their ticket from the last race, and around them are crowds, gazebos, tents, umbrellas, folding chairs, people lying in the sun…it’s all there.  And it was!
