Here's someone else who's had a bad day

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...d/propped1.jpg

Thoroughly Propped :D

And here's an easyjet caught in a hailstorm

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21.../easyhail1.jpg

And a treat for the passengers

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...d/mandarin.jpg

Keep your wonderful pics coming.

Cheers

OK here's some more photos. These are all older ones that I have to scan, so the quality isn't quite as good, and it takes me longer to get them done.

I'll do some more later, I have to watch the Warratahs slaughter the Crusaders now...

The first is a shot of Wellington Airport from overhead the Miramar Peninsula...

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 01.gif

Next is surf in Lyall Bay (just next to the airport)...

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 02.gif

This a a view of the city from Wrights Hill (behind Karori)...

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 03.gif

Wellington from overhead the Orongorongos... looking west... South Island behind..

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 04.gif

Wellington Airport from the south...

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 05.gif

The Orongorongo Valley. This place is about an hour from central Wellington. Lots of tracks and huts in here, great place for a tramp for all those who like nature...

This is the beach at the south end of the Wairarapa, south of Lake Ferry... 10 mins flying time from Wellington but a good two-hour drive over the Rimutaka Range...

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 07.gif

This is (I think) the Rakaia River, not too far from Christchurch... note the amazing visibility... those mountains are over 60 miles away...

http://www.viewthathouse.com/Britishexpats/Welly 08.gif

That's it for now, more after the game.

Well KJP I hope you enjoyed the game. Wasnt it Brilliant seeing all the records that the mighty Crusaders set when they WON & the Warratahs LOST. Yes I know the Warratahs made a great comeback but at the end of the day the scoreboard tells the story & so does the hardware in the Cabinet. Funny bhow as the supporter of A North Island team that didnt make the finals you would choose to support the Australian team rather than the NZ Team huh?:D
