OK I can play this game...

Until I can get to grips with how to post images so they show up normal size... the first two are Auckland, the third is Mt Ruapehu (in the summer, hence lack of snow).

Thanks Debs think Ive got it now so here goes one that some of you might encounter when travelling on some NZ country roads....of course the black sheep wont usually be there but this is the best photo I could find to show how the sheep are herded on the roads sometimes:)

Sorry guys now that Debs has shown me how to do this properly I think she may have created a monster:D . Here are a couple of photos that show my home town Rugby Stadium where The fabulous Crusaders play & the second one is of The Paul Kelly Dancers (Cheerleaders). The blonde girl at the front is my girlfriends daughter Cherie so Im particularly proud of that photo:D

Yeps Debs your so right & its all your fault too:D . Seriously I tried sending some K your way but I apparently have to spread it around first so thats one I owe you/ Will send as soon as it allows me to do so

Lyttelton Harbour Christchurch taken from The Port Hills.

My ex Mother inlaw lives in Whangamata & this is where I spent most Christmas Vacations for a lot of years. Great place.

Ex brother inlaw & family have a holiday home on the waterfront shown in this photo, great memories of happy times & major hangovers here

One for KJP.

Like the office. No glass ceiling there!! :D

Your 'mystery pic' is of Cap de la Hague, looking SE and Cherbourg can be seen too. Probably taken from around 30000ft I reckon. I'm only a learner pilot and don't do too much flying at those kinda heights in the Thruster and we don't do much channel crossing (Rotax failure over the water would be most unpleasant!!) :scared: . Once I get my wings I shall, no doubt be more adventurous.


You should Know this one!
