Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Marine Parade, Napier


Good morning from a cool but sunny Hastings morning.

Firstly I must really apologise for not getting around to everyone’s blogs.  Wordpress is now crashing as well as being very slow and laggy as my son says.  It is driving me nuts as you can imagine.  It seems that I am only allowed to do so much and then it decides I am not allowed to do any more and shuts the whole browser down.  Come on WordPress, get rid of all the bloat ware.

Now my whinging is over it is time to show some of my mobile photos.  My son is my chauffeur which means that I can have my camera or phone out to take photos.  So this is along Marine Parade heading into Napier.  I love this drive.  On clear days you can see right over to Cape Kidnappers.  The clouds were amazing this day.


Then the closer you get into Napier there are these Norfolk pines.  I remember visiting Napier as a child and these trees stood out in my mind for some reason.

Animal Friend of the Week: A Sumatran Tiger


Wellington 1 1355@0,1x

In the wild

IUCN: Critically endangered

Tigers are solitary animals, with males and females only coming together for mating. Cubs stay with their mother and have no contact with their father.

Sumatran Tigers are the smallest of the five remaining sub-species, and are found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. They are critically endangered due to habitat loss and illegal hunting, and there are believed to be less than 500 surviving in the wild.

Wellington Zoo is proud to support 21st Century Tiger, a zoo-based conservation initiative that supports wild tiger populations around the world.
