The usual whining at the start of the day.
In the city, steady drifting rain caused the view from Oriental Bay to the port to drift in and out of focus. The freighter ANL Elanora was being assisted into her berth by the Tapuhi and Tiaki, and frankly, that was pretty much all got for most of the day.
As the day wore on and desperation started to mount, I decided to go down to my garage and give my Dad’s old Myford lathe its occasional spin. This is nothing more than making sure it is lubricated. I haven’t used it for a year or two now.
As I went back up the steps to the house, I saw a rainbow fragment starting to form over near the bottom of the Wainuiomata hill. I tried my best to include the koru but … meh!
And then the sun snuck under the clouds to the West, just as a light rain shower started. Boom! A full glorious rainbow, and I had the wrong lens. I raced back up to the house and swapped lenses, certain in my heart that it would be gone when I came back. It wasn’t. It made the rest of the day worthwhile.
Something else tomorrow.
