If you don’t like our climate, wait twenty minutes.
Heading out to the hospital this morning, I liked the gentle fading provided by the mist as I came down the hill on my way to the hospital.
My friend’s wife had been by his side overnight and needed to go home for various things so I took her out to Upper Hutt. On the way back into town, the mist and rain seemed to get heavier and the pale greys and receding planes became more interesting.
It was still fairly murky at Ngauranga and two ships in the harbour looked interesting. On the right is the small LPG tanker Maea which has been anchored there for a few days. and on the right, Straitsman is heading towards her berth in the city.
After an interesting Vietnamese lunch, I headed back out to collect my friend’s wife and take her back to the hospital. The weather was clearing from the North and despite heavy clouds on the ranges, the sky behind me was blue.
This warranted a detour up into the heights of Kelson from where I found a new viewpoint looking down into the valley and across to Naenae.
Near the summit of the main road through Kelson the view South was entirely different from the greyness of the morning.
That’s enough for now.
