Art Exhibition & Poetry Competition & What The Water's Doing

I had an enjoyable visit out at Bellamy's Gallery, MacAndrew Bay this afternoon. The road out to Mac Bay follows the line of the harbour and is very pretty.

 I was thinking as I drove back - it's  good for my well-being to be near water. It's good to check up on what the water's doing.

As beneficial as a daily check of the sky.

Looking across to the city over the Andy Bay inlet.

If you get a chance and are in the locality - do call into Bellamy's Art Gallery in MacAndrew Bay to take a look at the exhibition, 'North meets South'. It runs all month. You will see some marvellous creations - ceramics, jewellery, prints, paintings ... works by South Island artists that have been inspired by North Island haiku.

It is a 'Poems in the Waiting Room' enterprise conceived, instigated, organised and powered by the amazing Ruth Arnison. The Bellamy's Gallery is a perfect location for the works.

Read more about the show at the North Meets South blog - found HERE.

Go check it out. While you're there, you can also visit The Bay Cafe for a coffee and savour the view from their windows.

Clocking Out

 I have been neglecting this blog for some months. I think perhaps I should face facts and accept that it is indeed time to retire this blog...
