To this....... Friendly north island native
Oi!! You talking to us? We'll keep our sense of humour thanks. On the subject of Charles I personally shall be glad to say goodbye to him and his horsey wife. On the subject of royalty, last weekend I went to a 3-day conference and stayed here:



Cumberland Lodge in the grounds of the Great park, Windsor owned by Her Maj. The director of the lodge said that we could roam the grounds at our leisure but shouldn't go anywhere marked 'Private' in case Prince Philip was shooting pheasant, his eyesight's not what it was apparently and he might mistake one of us for a pheasant. Lovely.

lets just say those without a sense of humour know who I am talking about.....dont think you were one of them Must admit I was one of those who were dead against Charlie Boy marrying his bulldog but what ever makes the fool happy I guess. Easy to see Im still a fan of Diana's huh.

These next three photos are of An Apline Village about an hour & half drive out of Christchurch, Hanmer Springs Thermal Resort which is a fabulous place to visit all year long. Especially beautiful during the winter months to sit & soak in the hot pools while there is snow all around. Makes for a quick dash to the changing rooms when you get out though but definately worth it.









Hope you enjoy these...will try & post some more tomorrow but for now its past my bedtime

Great photos on this thread. I've been enjoying the banter between KJP and Shepslady and also Biddy. I would love to post photos of my place of birth and upbringing - Hokitika - but will post a poem describing the rain instead...

The Rain (poet unknown)

It rained and rained and rained

The average fall was well maintained

And when the tracks were simply bogs

It started raining cats and dogs

After a drought of half an hour

We had a most refreshing shower

And then the most curious thing of all

A gentle rain began to fall

Next day was also fairly dry

Save for a deluge from the sky

Which wetted the party to the skin

And after that the rain set in.


Rain is legendary on the West Coast but nevertheless it is a very special place. And I'm sure the poem has several more rainy verses!
