i was expecting NZ to be hedgeless, but thankfully it isn’t.  in fact here’s a lovely hedge with red flowers in it.

no parking

we went to a farmer’s market on sunday.  it was very busy so we followed the signs to the parking, including this one pointing to the enterance (sic)

we drove that way please only to find the parking signs led to this very closed gate.

and yes, of course all the signs are upside down as we’re down under !

yes, they do have crazy golf

delighted to find not one but two crazy golf establishments within 5 minutes drive from our house.  this one even had multiple courses.

i suspect their proximity made be due to the number of pommy/uk settlers in this area.  we all love a good crazy gold course.

overlowing beaches

here’s a rather subtle overflow pipe.  best not to walk underneath that one i think
