Now that’s more like it.
At the beginning of the week, the MetService website was offering no sunshine until next Tuesday. Contrary to that expectation of overcast and rain, the sky was blue. Nobody told the thermometers, though, and the temperatures remained obdurately low.
Nevertheless, nice light is always welcome. In Evans Bay, the boatsheds were presiding over a placid harbour and flaunting their lurid colours.
On the South Coast, the view across the strait to the Kaikoura ranges was unusually clear. That dark fin out there is not the world’s largest shark, but a rock over which the waves were breaking from time to time.
My car was in need of petrol, so I went to a gas station where I decided to make use of the car wash machine. Never miss a chance, even though the outcome may be less than stellar.
Back at home, I was amazed to see what looked like the world’s most obese native pigeon. I think in fact this fellow was puffing himself up to win the approval of a nearby female.
That’s it for today.
