    DownUnder and Over - NZ

    Hello Ya'll!

    I am down under and over a bit in New Zealand.

    Probably won't be posting as much the next few months. Limited internet access is a pain in the but, 31.2 kbps = ouch. I was really pleasantly surprised how fast the info on PPO loads. Most internet connections here pay for it by the amount of info they use, 1gb = about $30.00.

    Beautiful Scenes


    Yes, I have to wear one of these Orange suits also. Not only is it winter here, for those that are globally impaired, the SUN is in the NORTH. It rises in the Northeast and sets in the Northwest.


    I will be back in full effect in September when I get back to my computer and High Speed.

    Hey, I had to add this photo and a short story.

    Tonight, looking out the patio window, this is what I saw.



    It was a group of roughly 60-80 bottlenose dolphins in our bay.

    It was fun to watch them with binocs. The photo was taken with a 650mm lens, at about 3200 ISO.

    Update from downunder and over!

    Thought these photos might be interesting.

    I took all these myself. The dolphins like to come right up to the boat and investigate. Sometimes they like to ride the wake in the back of the boat, that was cool to see, it was kind of like surfing not on top of the wave but right in the wave.








    Duh Duh.... Duh Duh......watchout........!!!!
