A daytime view of some of the lanterns in Hagley park. No doubt they will look fabulous tonight in the dark.

Smoke over the Port Hills

February 15, 2017

A very smokey Port Hills at about 3.30pm today (taken near the roundabout at that goes onto Tunnel Road).

We woke up to the smell of smoke – which hung around most of the day, but a wind change cleared it out for us. A state of emergency has been declared and parts of some hill suburbs have been evacuated. Let’s hope we get some rain.

Fires in the Port Hills

February 14, 2017

For the last two days there have been fires raging in the port hills – with flames visible from the city. From up the top of the Gondola I could see the aerial fire-fighting efforts of the incredible pilots flying the planes and the helicopters dousing the flames. They are such brave people who tirelessly serve others in a dangerous situation. Tragically, one of the helicopters crashed and the pilot did not survive. Thinking of the family today who have lost their loved one. Such a terrible loss.

Thank you to all of the amazing fire fighters who are working so hard to protect everyone – they are true heros.

Mona Vale Homestead

February 13, 2017

Mona Vale homestead re-opened recently after a restoration – and it’s looking fantastic. I took the opportunity to meet some friends there for lunch and then a short walk around the rose garden.
