Day 80

Wednesday 20th May

Well it was a very cold night, woke early and went to the kitchen and made a drink, wrapped myself in a big cuddly blanket and was drinking it when the other traveller chap popped his head in and was shocked to see me, this is at 5 am. When the sun rose it was so foggy, i got dressed and went out to take photo’s. We then had breakfast and headed off to St Columba Falls, what a sight, just to massive to fit in one shot. The forest was beautiful, just love the green moss on all the dead trees and the Punga ferns are massive.

Day 66

Wednesday 6th May

Well we went for a drive, the storm has passed , we still have rain and the annex cant go anywhere now. Went to Stanley to see a photo our friend has put into the Cow & Calf Gallery, photography fine art, really lovely art. Got to meet David the owner and Photographer. Next door is the Brown Dog cafe, where we went to have some morning tea, lovely old and unique place. Just loved both their names and there is a story behind the Brown dog but didn’t find out if there was a story behind the gallery name.
