A common scene

3 comments
The Waikato region is farming country. It is quite common to see tractors on the roads around Hamilton. I spotted this one south of Hamilton, just outside Te Awamutu. The driver was taking his time and seemed very laidback about the very slow speed at which he was travelling.

I have been hibernating ...

6 comments
I have been very slack the past week or so in posting photos on the blog. I blame the very cold weather we've been having for putting me in a mood to hibernate. I have spent the last few days bundled up in blankets and duvets with books, TV, wine, chocolate, soup, meat stew - and the cat - for company. I will soon emerge from my cocoon, feeling somewhat revitalised and more prepared for life! Bring it on!

Bass x 2

3 comments
A friend has taken up the double bass. She gets lessons from a travelling music teacher, who pops in to give a lesson whenever he's in the area. How quaint.

I want to ride my bicycle

0 comments
This bike, which qualifies as an antique, belongs to a friend of mine who rides it to work most days. Being a university town, there are lots of academics - and students - who ride their bikes to work. I just love it!

Continuing on yesterday's theme, this footballer obviously takes his sport very seriously!

Future All Whites!

These two lads are very skilled with a football! They were very happy to pose for a few photos. Maybe they'll play for the All Whites one day.

Crouching tiger, hidden dragon

1 comments
The tiger is nowhere to be found, and the dragon is not hidden - in fact, it's a flying dragon!

This White Rhino is taking his afternoon nap in shade very seriously. He (or she) will not take kindly to any interruption!
