Where I live

Rangitoto Island, Auckland, New Zealand view from Mission Bay
I took this photo of  Rangitoto a couple of years ago and it always makes me feel happy.  I drive here when the toddler is having a naughty day and everything seems alot better.  It was even great here a few weeks ago when we stopped and it was howling wind and pouring rain.

I should also mention this is a live volcano that is in our very midsts, a slumbering destructor of worlds.  I really should not have watched that drama programme they made about it last year ( in an effort I think to scare us into preperation for WHEN it erupts - thats WHEN not IF)....have you got your survival kit ready Auckland??  Have you too noticed the alarming number of 'Are you prepared' ads recently, like they know something.  I've got some loo roll, tinned food and candles in a box . I'm not really sure I have anything in there that will deal with lava and ash.  Note to self - watch more Bear Grylls programmes.


  1. "On the last day of Pompeii I thought i heard some poor boy say "Wish I knew then what I know now"!"
    some song i used to know a long time ago.

  2. Looks like some smooth sailing on that water.
    But nature may make a statement -- never know.

  3. hmmm, yes some would say just move.
