Day Trippers


Christmas dinner ...   (Photo by Jenny Jakobeit)

On Christmas Day, the appearance of a giant rainbow (bow of rain) topping off a fantastic day with family.

 Port Chalmers

After three, or was it four? days of persistent, misty rain and drizzle, it was good to see the sun again today. Perfect for a drive out to Port,

 2nd-hand shop... 

Cruise ship towering above the museum ... 

One of the shop-keepers said that unusually, 90 percent of the passengers this time were New Zealanders.

Chick's Hotel; bastion of the alternative in entertainment - headquarters of Dunedin's sub-culture ...



Time for a coffee; not much choice of things to eat (late afternoon realities)




The following three photos were all taken by Jenny Jakobeit ...

Steve - Jenny takes beautiful photos!

KJ - Aw, thank you! I would love to do the trip for a coffee - if ever I ever do make it over, it will be a priority! Happy New Year to you & to yours too, my friend.
