i went for a walk around Te Mata peak last weekend to find the redwood grove .. there are two groves there , the baby redwoods and the giant redwoods , i found the baby ones but ran out of time to walk to the giants as the weather was turning bad …. this is what i found
all that is gone
all that’s to come
and every thing under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon……
i was thirteen when i first heard those lyrics and i still love them…
i have just added this album to my vinyl collection…..
in last nights post i said that the sounds are the jewel in the crown of nz scenery, this may or may not be true , on reflection the west coast and southland , of the south island , are as stunning …
an untouched beach
the call to move the cook strait ferry terminal from picton to clifford bay has started again … from a sheltered port in queen charlotte sound to an exposed beach at clifford bay is , and always will be , an option prefered by muppets.. the age-old call , it will take 1/2 an hour of the trip , has not been good enough in the past and will not be good enough now.. that extra 1/2 an hour is the most incredible scenery in this country.. having taken the trip hundreds of times i am still in awe of the scenery and beleave it is the jewel in our crown …….. lets leave the terminal where it is ….
Golf will miss you… so will all golf fans
as some of you will know i am a Rolling Stones fan as well as a reborn vinyl diehard… this path can only lead to “Exile on Main Street” … today i went to my favorite record shop (The Musicbox,heretaunga street Hastings …a must visit if you are ever in this part of the world ) and picked up a copy .. as with all the Rolling Stone records that i buy i paid a premium and got an excellent recording….
