Brighton Storm

We were just heading home along the coast road when we saw a big storm heading our way, so we rushed home, I grabbed my camera and got some photos.

McKee Reserve and Mapua

McKee Memorial Scenic Reserve occupies an area of coastal land at the northern end of Ruby Bay. The reserve is approximately 1 km north of Ruby Bay township. A nice camping and picnic area with great view across the bay to Nelson.


While staying in Motueka for a few days we were exploring the surrounding area and stumbled on Higgins Heritage Park, might be interesting we thought! And it was – for $5 you can wander around this large complex full of interesting machinery and ‘stuff’.

Hokitika Gorge

On our recent holiday we stayed at Hokitika, a great spot on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island.  We hadn’t spent much time around this area and one of the places we really wanted to visit was the beautiful Hokitika Gorge.
