Winter is the season now

Tararua ranges near Masterton 26th July 2011
The Tararua Ranges near Masterton, taken on 26th July, just after the road was opened. What a way to start the day,looking for a feed in the snow and ice.010

These two photos are from Hugh's camera.Mine were not so good,  and when I asked, he said "YES" I could use them, then wanted to know how long they stay here."Until I delete them, or forever" WOW!!!

One of the photos from the far south, no vehicles ventured far that day,  definitely a day for the 4x4, the Rhino or the quad.3 layers of Merino, thickest socks, Muck Boots that have that wonderful lining, Gore-Tex coat, Youngstown gloves that defy the coldest air, and for sure a double layer hat as well.and the saying “ put another log on the fire” please. would be  put to good use.

road at Waitahuna
Photos from Mt Cook, Twizel and Wanaka are still to come.I hear that longboarding on the road, at 7 a.m. in minus 7 degrees was “ sooo good”.

Quotation of the day,  name not known.
A Japanese proverb
One kind word can warm three winter months.


Cheers from Jean
