Sign of the Kiwi Cafe

January 27, 2017

The Sign of the Kiwi Cafe recently re-opened after being restored due to earthquake damage. I headed up there today to grab a bite to eat and check out things out.

It’s proving to be very popular, and if you do visit just be aware that it’s cash only at the moment until they sort out their Eftpos / internet set up.

You can learn more about the restoration at

Here’s one of the views – the observant will spot a chair lift going up the hill (the Adventure Park).

Three Little Owls

January 26, 2017

I have three juvenile German / Little owls living in literally my back yard! I knew we definitely had one, so I was excited to see two, then was blown away to see a third one join them – all the while their mother owl was keeping a close eye on me from about 100 metres away – ready to swoop in at a moments notice. No wonder it’s been so noisy around here lately!


The Front Room Cafe at the Mt Pleasant Community Centre

What a lovely view you get from the Front Room cafe that’s in the Mt Pleasant community centre. I checked it out today after noticing it on a recent bike ride along the coastal pathway.

And here’s a front view of the community centre. If you live in the neighbourhood check out the classes they have on there such as yoga and martial arts.

Christmas Baubles in the Botanic Gardens

January 8, 2017

I stumbled across these Christmas decorations in the Botanic Gardens today – I had no idea they were there, and I’m guessing from the cords hanging from them that they were light up. Would have looked very pretty.
