..dear readers, for leaping to your keyboards and restoring my faith in blogging.
I've been out and about over the past 24 hours - firstly to the Bluff Oyster Festival. As well as being NZ's southernmost town and on e that was settled by Europeans very early on in NZ's history, Bluff is most famous for its oysters.
This was the lineup on stage for the sea-themed fashion show. Some very imaginative costumes.
On the docks afterwards....
...a nice little fishing boat.
I liked the reflection of the rope in the water...
...and of this boat too.
This morning, I went out to Oreti Beach to take some moody in-the-rain photos but as soon as I decided to do that, the weather improved.
There had been quite a bit of rain during the night, and even a touch of snow on the hills.
I always like seascapes with a bird in them. Click on photos to enlarge them.
