Wharfdale Track - Oxford Foot Hills Today

Just the 3 of us, 20 degree day, bellbirds and tuis and some spectacular beech forrest and light.

The Lost Blog Post

So frustrating - the pace life gets think its forever..and you can't seem to find the time to rest, blog, sit down, contemplate or listen to music ever again.  And then a gap just opens up.  And I can blog again!!  These pics are from the past month.  They show vintage at Black Estate Wines.  I got out there a few times to pick some pinot noir and chardonnay grapes in April.
 Some days were really cold.  This is my Dad and husband getting the grapes up to the winery for processing..
 Some of our legendary pickers.  Some days were sublime (check that blue)!
Rabbit catcher, grape eater, caravan sleeper, general good company and moral booster below:

The Massey Fergeuson doing its thing..and towing pickers..nothing better than a trailer ride!  Everyone takes on the age of 6!  Good times.

Newish Christchurch Mural Snapped at Traffic Lights

To the right of this mural (hadn't noticed it before on Brougham St, near Colombo St Corner) there is the most insane street corner stack of rubble. No pics of rubble. I'm done with the rubble shots.
