De Haviland Vampire185 viewsOne of my favourite jet fighters (Along with the Me262). These were used back in the days when New Zealand actually had an airforce. Since then, our lefty dictator, comrade Helen, has decreed that we don't need strike aircraft, and the former RNZAF Skyhawks sit in open storage, slowly rotting away. RNZAF Museum, Christchurch
Framed Fox189 viewsFox Glacier, framed through native vegetation. Lou took this, she is getting rather good at this photography lark.
Hole in the Ice181 viewsI spotted this slab of ice at the edge of the glacier. Fortunately, the sun was in just the right position.
Kea241 viewsThese birds are extremely destructive - do not leave your car open, or anything unattended, they WILL steal whatever they can get hold of.
Pancake Rocks159 viewsUnusual limestone formations, look just like a stack of pancakes (admittedly, pancakes from a rather strange kitchen with an unskilled chef).
Buller Gorge Road145 viewsThis little stretch of one-lane road with the rock overhang, on the way through the Buller Gorge, is the most photographed bit of road in the country
Welcome to Collingwood160 viewsWe have a town named after us. Even if it had a horse, it wouldn't qualify as a one horse town, it's so small. It is a lovely place, though, the locals are very friendly, and the surroundings are quite spectacular
Salisbury Bridge146 viewsLou, being the tough Aussie, took great delight in making the bridge swing as much as possible, at which point, I got off....Funny, I feel quite safe flying a flimsy little Cessna 152, but was very queasy on this thing.
Collingwood Museum148 viewsWe even have a museum named after us.....Lou said that I should be one of the exhibits......
Kaikoura Seal152 viewsThis was just off off the main North-South road running down the South Island, and there were hundreds of them just lazing around - apperently they sometime make their way onto the road, squish, squish.....
Hanmer Horses168 viewsWe went for a three hour ride through the bush near Hanmer. Lou had Shar, I had Katie. Shar is a very docile girl, Katie is a bit of a prima donna, and did not like any other horse being near her. She is lovely to ride, though, and very easy to get the rhythm of in the rising trot.
