In New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand there is a foreshore walkway. This winding path hugs the coastline from Port Taranaki , passed the wind wand in downotown and 10 kiloslater arrives at the mouth of the Waiwakaiho River. Since its opening ffour years ago the walkway has been a huge hit with locals and visitors alike.The perfect exercise by walking, jogging or biking along the coast. The barrier to further development northwards has always been the river. This has now been bridged – The Te Rewa Rewa Bridge opening up another 10 k’s of coast to Bell Block. This video is about the new link.
A visit to my friendly service garage to have two new tyres fitted turned out to be fun. Firstly the boys did the job within ten minutes without a problem .. until of course they discovered I was filming them in action. The video shows their reaction. The good news is they did not charge me for the service. The problem is if they see this film online I may receive an invoice in the mail.
All Black’s captain Richie MaCaw and three of his team mates made a surprise visit to Richmond St, New Plymouth before the Irish Test.
I was in my office at the back of the house when they came to the backdoor.. what a surprise. We had a good chat and I gave them advice.. they won against the Irish two days later.
A night out at Wellington’s Opera House – great music and fun.
I will be travelling with the group, shooting still pictures and video.
