Auckland Round The Bay’s 2015

Time again for Aucklands annual Round the Bay’s fun run/race, our biggest annual run the country holds. A nice calm morning made for a scenic walk to the start (and warm weather for the run)

Weekend shot land crab

Not many of these around now. This one in great condition.
In it’s many variants it’s (the ADO16) been known as the Austin 1100/1300, Morris 1100/1300, Austin America, Austin Glider,Austin Victoria, Riley 1300, Wolseley 1100/1300/1275, MG 1100/1300, Vanden Plas 1300 and even more I have not listed. A good old British car of the 60’s (into mid 70s)

Winter Work Ride 1


It’s been a good while since I’ve been on my bicycle. I was thinking about it over the weekend. The news has been discussing general country obesity issues of recent. Over 60% of the country is technically overweight/obese! It’s appalling. I know using the standard height/weight measure, I’m included in that group (although I would argue it based on muscle mass). So between that and my poor sitting bike I decided to ride to work.
I woke up, it was raining. Tough luck, still riding. Makes lighting a fire on a Monday night even more rewarding I said to myself.
The aims to ride again tomorrow. Just have to dry my clothes and gear first! 🙂

Early Market Journey


An early (for a Sunday) 7am journey took us 160km south to the Cambridge street market. The journey down, as usual, was very scenic with a foggy start, and clearing to  beautiful fresh morning.

Kaukapakapa visit


Today took us out to Kaukapakapa visiting a venue with family. Arriving early gave us time for a stroll around the little township, and to the above paddock where cows look to live in the slanty building. A nice day considering the time of year.
