This week should be fun as I’m on the road in Northland with the CLA facilitating workshops so photos from all over! Love travelling and seeing new places and all part of work too.
Here is today’s photo – managed to get up high before the sun went down. Always good to escape four walls and commune with nature. The bush smelled so earthy today – damp leaves and dripping trees and plenty of birdsong. The going was a but gnarly underfoot – bit of an adventure. I like being just a little uncertain about where I am and where I’m going to end up! Coronation Reserve in Whangarei.
What is it about cats and boxes?
Educampthetron was today. It was great to share a day of learning and practice with colleagues in the Waikato. Later on we went into town. The new sculpture is now unveiled. Not sure entirely what I think of it. Quite impressive, definitely stands out. I have a feeling that it could become an iconic symbol of the Tron.
My slouch beanie is growing. Taking longer than the others but getting there. We’ve decided to knit beanies to raise money for Oxfam. Yes, entered the trailwalker again – gluttons for punishment. We’re trying to raise money ethically and by using recycled materials.
Had a fun morning making stuff. This is ‘toothbrushbot’ – first stage of the zombie bot project.
Boy, did it rain today! I drove through thunder and lightning and torrential rain on my way to Maniapoto for a school visit today. The countryside round there is beautiful but I didn’t really get a decent photo.
This evening we went to see Aonghas in his children’s theatre production – very entertaining! And then we stood on the side of the hockey turf in the rain watching his hockey game. Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly they lost to St Paul’s.
I’ve chosen a photo of Aonghas playing Swiper in his drama production as I am sure I’ve posted photos of him playing hockey already, and if I haven’t, there will be other opportunities – the season has only just begun!
A little bit of a cheat today as I didn’t take any photos. However, the new sculpture in Hamilton was in the news and since I took a photo of it at the weekend I thought it worth sharing.
Apparently ‘The waterfall of the sculpture represents the tongue of the dog, described in a Maori legend about the creation of the Waikato River.’
My photo doesn’t show the waterfall as it was taken before it was unveiled. Will have to go and take another this weekend.
Winter has come. Our Indian Summer is over. Love this full moon.
A day of sun and showers, dark clouds and rainbows.
