I am still using Hugh's laptop , mine has gone to Auckland to be repaired . Meantime here are some views from Hugh’s camera.Earlier this year Hugh and I went for a very short walk on the Kahikatea Track. It is about half an hour, and in places overlooks the Pohangina River. It was crystal clear this day and the water almost seemed to be that luminous turquoise colour,
A few years ago a beautiful dark ginger boy adopted us, he came and went in his own time, stayed for a few nights and days, maybe a week ,and then was AWOL for some days, we always thought he had another home. He was gentle, a big cat, huge feet, and in time became more contented with our home and would sit with us at night, then in the morning would be gone. Here he is in the late afternoon sun. Tom, you stole my heart.
Another day this year Hugh and I went on the Gentle Annie Road which goes from Taihape to Napier. Snow had fallen that week and there was some at the top, and also on the sides of the road. Sheep looked on as we took photos on the way. I was muffled up in a double layer coat, fleece hat, and needed gloves outside, there was very little wind, but the air was still freezing cold.
Quotation of the day, author unknown,
“ Keep your hat on!!!”
Cheers from Jean.
