Yes, I’m still running a day behind.
On Sunday a group of fellow photographers joined me on the homeward trip across the strait, on the Kaitaki. Bizarrely, we ended up sitting at the same table from which my iPad was stolen on the journey South. I have now replaced it, and of course, the instant you use iCloud to restore the contents of the old machine to the new device, the tracking that might otherwise have located my stolen device ceases to apply. As far as iCloud is concerned, my new machine is my old one. We were all a bit battle weary and to some extent, “peopled out” so it was a somewhat subdued crossing. The weather was deteriorating rapidly and through the salt stained front window I noticed some lenticular clouds forming over the Eastern hills of Wellington as we got nearer. In need of fresh air, I went to the upper deck to get this.
Sufficient fresh air was obtained in a very short time since it was being forced into my lungs at high speed and low temperature. I turned my back and looked across the lifeboats to the Bluebridge ferry far in the distance even though she left Picton five minutes ahead of us.
Out to the North West, the clouds were interesting and the wind turbines near Makara were clearly visible.
That’s it for today.
