Wide Eyed Wanderings – Broad Bay, NZ


We left Queenstown in the early morning and made our way by auto to the tiny hamlet of Broad Bay, just outside of Dunedin. We took a delightful historic cottage via Air B&B1. Our hosts, Mary and Rick were delightful folks, helpful and charming, kind and respectful of our privacy, we could not have asked for more. Waking up to a front room that is mostly windows with ocean and mountain views was awesome. Continue reading “Wide Eyed Wanderings – Broad Bay, NZ”

Wide Eyed Wanderings — Queenstown Gardens, New Zealand

Queenstown is the Extreme Sports capital of New Zealand, probably of the world. Name an extreme sport and chances are if it’s not readily available, they can arrange it for you.

Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, NZ

Today we’re off on the “Million Dollar Cruise” of Lake Wakatipu. Our hotel lies across the lake from Queenstown on the Frankton arm, near where the lakes drains into the Kawarau River. We catch the water taxi at the hotel dock to the Queenstown waterfront. There is no market today and with less crowds there is more time to enjoy the waterfront itself. We linger for a bit enjoying the sites and some found poetry. Continue reading “Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, NZ”

Prosceiums Friday Follies 2-1

Chapter 2 – episode of Proscenium’s Friday Follies – another round of fun/fascinating/titillating signs and posters. YEAH MAN!

This weeks contribution from me is one I found in the Badlands of South Dakota. It really made me go “now what?” It makes more sense when you know that the second shot is what you see when you look past the sign. Enjoy
