Season’s Greetings - Pōhutukawa

 Happy holiday season from Nelson New Zeeland.

Again, this is the nature's Christmas tree "Pōhutukawa" flower.  Now, it's nearly full in broom.

Nelson Summer Shakespeare at Fairfield House

Most years since we've come to Nelson, there was a local Shakespeare production every summer, often outdoors, involving many high school kids and other young folks. In recent times the focus switched to professionalism, with smaller cast, but this year's Comedy of Errors went back to the older style, just superbly choreographed and rather polished. It's always fun to spot actors we saw in previous productions as well.

Ben and I were the first ones to arrive on Saturday, and though I have no way of knowing for sure, there may have been between two to three hundred in the audience, enjoying a balmy summer's evening with picnic food and good company.

While Ben was on Staycation...

State Cinema turned yellow. Ben's been on staycation for the last week and a half and we noticed for the first time yesterday on our way to the PO. I think the color suits the Art Deco style. Do you like it? 

I can't remember if this was the last time, but I posted another facelift in 2008

Brigadoon Island?

We've been having uninspiring weather of late. Tuesday, we had fog, but not just white morning fog. At one point, in town, one street was clear and the next was covered in dark grey fog, so strange I even rang Ben to ask if there was fire around his work two blocks from where I was. Nope, just patchy fog.

In August 2006, we started Nelson Daily Photo after discovering Beirut Daily Photo that day. Our thoughts are with folks in that beautiful city.

Red-ish Carpet to The Palace Backpackers

Friday was cold but sunny, and one could not walk past and not see these steps leading up to The Palace on Rutherford Street, not only because the carpet (?) was bright and cheerful but also because we have steps of rough concrete with which we could do something similar.

Funny how I've seen gazillion interesting things done with steps around the world on the Internet and yet it took something local, and in real life, to realize, hey, maybe...
