A Chilly Windy Sunday ... #62
YES perhaps it does look sort of warm in the photo .. the sun is shining .. at least enough to create shadows and sunstrike for driving !!! .. but in reality the wind was biting cold and you need to wrap up warm. This family, like a lot of Wellingtonians .. do just that and get out and about to enjoy the bracing fresh air. This family were having a race along the spaced wooden planks .. a bit like a sports practice. Despite the cold wind they were laughing and cheering and haviving a great time. This image was taken from Cable Street looking across Waitangi Park towards the hills above Oriental Bay.
The weather this weekend has been a mixed bag of sun, heavy rain and cold wind. On the brighter side the national rugby team , the All Blacks beat the Australian national side, the Wallabies so we retain the Bledisloe Cup and win the Tri-Nations Cup .. a GREAT OUTCOME .. and to really top it off we also won the Netball against Australia as well. This is all part of the on going sporting battles that NZ and Australia have participated in for many years. We each seem to have our fair share of wins and losses .. and when we do lose the nation almost goes into mourning ... and really it's only a game ... YEAH RIGHT.
