Our Place...

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbour.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.

- Mark Twain

A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

Lady Fair from one of Te Papa's windows

The first couple of years we lived in the marina, the shags were so plentiful that some days there would be one perched on almost every piling with wings spread out to dry.  However, some type of algal bloom caused much of the marine life to die and the shags disappeared as well.  We see one only occasionally now.

The bottom picture illustrates one of the major faults of the marina.  The wind most often comes from the northeast.  When the wind is very strong, waves wash over the floating breakwater.  Sometimes the air is so full of blowing water we can't even see Wellington.

The Ladies

One thing I do not want to be called is First Lady.  It sounds like a saddle horse.

- Jacqueline Kennedy

I tried searching on the internet for Lady Fair just to see what turned up.  Guess what I found!  Isn't she pretty?
