A walking day today. Over the bridge to Victoria Avenue...watching the Waimarie start the 11am cruise..pointing downstream, and making a turn in the river where the ferry used to be, halfway between its mooring and the bridge, before heading upstream to turn at Upokongaro.
Holding onto my hat so that I wouldn't lose it to the wind!! (A NZ cricket hat...I need a new one for best, and this one can be promoted to Gardening Hat)
Then a wander up Victoria, doing this and that before getting a wrap for lunch...so much salad in it, they had a job to wrap it!!! Then a little fresh food shopping, a birthday card to post and home. All the time going from one shady patch to another! Some places were forecast 30⁰ today, but I don't think that we have reached that..probably 25⁰.
Thinking of our house sitters travelling in cold and weather warning level wetness...and friends in the USA and Canada with several feet of snow..could be nasty if that melts quickly.
Now it's mid-afternoon and we are relaxing.
I am out on the verandah..at first floor level...until the sun gets round and to my feet!!
Looking forward to the Whanganui Vintage weekend about the 20th of January!!
