Another grey day yesterday.
In the small window available to me yesterday I decided that there might be some interesting views from the East-facing slopes of Wadestown. By the time I actually got there, the low clouds that caught my eye earlier in the day had moved on. Nevertheless, the mood was interesting.
One of the nice things about going to different places in the city is the pleasure of finding new view-windows. A view across Wadestown and Ngaio to Khandallah appealed to me.
Swinging around to the South from the same area, there was a line-up of ships in the port. At the rear, the Jeppesen Maersk, and then the Arahura being prepared for sale after her retirement last week. In front of her is the LPG tanker, Maea, and the coastal cement carrier, Golden Bay. Then there is the fisheries research vessel Tangaroa and near the cement silos, a small fishing vessel the identity of which I didn’t discover.
Back in the Hutt Valley, I went to Hikoikoi and was distressed to see people gathering shellfish from a notoriously polluted mudflat. High concentrations of lead and heavy metals are known to be present in this area, and I would hate to think of this being consumed.
In the immortal words of a certain rabbit, that’s all folks.
