Yesterday was ridiculously busy.
Someone had found this blog and made an offer to purchase some images from it. I spent the morning putting together a hundred candidate images and sold three. It is never going to be a significant revenue stream, and indeed may never happen again, but the price made the effort worthwhile. It left little time, however to catch pictures for the day. I drove out along the Eastern Bays and explored one of the side roads from York Bay. This view down to the oil terminal at Seaview caught the Panamanian registered “Patagonian Mystic” offloading oil products.
In the evening we had a small gathering to mark the birthday of youngest son Anthony. Mary had prepared a pavlova, the dessert dish which has now been proven by scholarly research and beyond all doubt, to have been invented in New Zealand, regardless of spurious claims from the West Island.
Our grandchildren Maggie and Cooper needed no persuasion to be the triumphant bearers of the birthday pavlova, complete with lighted candles.
Normal service should resume soon.
