Grateful to go out on cloudy & rainy days

I am very grateful for trains and busses that take people over 65 to places they won’t visit on their own.

The best is that between 9 am to 3 pm the trip is free!

I try to make a trip to Wellington city once a week now that the weather is clearing up.

Last week was very cold and cloudy.

This week the weather here in Upper Hutt was kind of clear.

Sorry to say, just before reaching Wellington station there was a heavy down pour .

It was dry during my stroll along the harbour.

I am so grateful that I could take some photos of the dark clouds

Then the sun appeared.

Better still,

nearly clear sky gave me the following

and this one!

These photos are all taken at the civic center in

Wellington New Zealand

Then back home again.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to take some special photos again.

I am grateful for having the talent to see the beauty around me and to photograph them.

I am grateful this week for an excellent report on my photo by my tutor!

What have you been grateful for this week?

Rainbow

Last night the first snow of this winter fell on the hills near me.

This morning was very cold but clear.

I could see the snow-covered tops of the Rimutakas.

Tuesday I decided to go on a photo shoot.

I am interested in the pier in Petone.

I took some beautiful photos of it.

A bonus was granted to me in the form of a rainbow display!

Water, water, every where,

And all the boards did shrink;

Water, water, every where,

Nor any drop to drink.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (originally The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere) is the longest major poem by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, written in 1797–98 and published in 1798 in the first edition of Lyrical Ballads. Modern editions use a revised version printed in 1817 that featured a gloss. Along with other poems in Lyrical Ballads, it was a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literature.

Wellington day out again!

Yesterday was a good day to visit Wellington again but

I did not go!

There was a big passenger ship in the harbor  and I looked forward to take photos of it,

BUT

I did not go –

and today the ship wasn’t there anymore.

This morning I decided I’ll go in to Wellington and hope for the best.

The weather was really not of the best.

I took some photos and still enjoyed the trip.

The trip from Upper Hutt to Wellington by train takes 50 minutes.

I walked around the harbor for about an hour and a half

back by train took another 50 minutes.

I have been out for 3 hours and now I am relaxing and am going to show some photos.

Enjoy.

We also saw the Bee Hive, a Bear shop and the Train Station.

We went back at about 2 0’clock.

Tired but very happy.

We really had a good time in Wellington.

Wellington, an awesome visit no1

It has been another busy week in the

Scrapydo camp.

We (that is my student and I) went on some

School Activities on Thursday!

The International students had to visit at least 5 interesting places in and around Wellington.

The week between the two long weekend was horrible weather wise.

Wednesday and Thursday were two better days.

Wednesday we went to the beach at Petone.

We first visited the Learning Connection.

A place where you can do anything crafty.

We met a dog there and I had to taken photos of it.

It had one blue and one brown eye.

 Then we went on to the SEA!
