The Photo Gallery: Red

| March 20, 2013

This week’s Photo Gallery theme on Tara Cain’s blog Sticky Fingers is Red. Friday 15 March was Red Nose Day and so far over an amazing £75 million has been raised in aid of transforming lives across the UK and Africa. Well done everyone who took part!

I’m a big fan of the colour Red. Here are some of my favourite photos taken this year.

Sea Fun at Days Bay

| March 1, 2013

Some of the best beaches in Wellington are found in Days Bay near Eastbourne. There are cafes, restaurants, shops and several stretches of beautiful coastline with warm clear water.

The East by West Ferry takes passengers from Days Bay across the sea to Wellington city in 20 minutes. It would be the perfect location to live if you work in the city and want a relaxed lifestyle with the beach on your doorstep. There are some incredible walks in the Eastbourne area which is surrounded by hills and New Zealand bush.

Wellington City

| February 28, 2013

I adore New Zealand’s capital city. Wellington was my hometown for nine very happy years. The memories it holds for me are etched all over the city. I spent several years studying at Victoria University and then worked in the capital for four years before moving to London.

Things I love most about Wellington:

The beautiful globe-like sculpture of silver ferns hangs over Civic Square.

The amazing Parliamentary Building known as The Beehive. The Executive Wing of parliament has been named The Beehive due to its shape. It’s here that the Prime Minister and Cabinet Ministers have offices and this is where the Cabinet meets.
