St Clair in the Sun


What a stuinning day, after all the freezing weather and snow the last week. I sat on the Esplanade getting my 20 minutes of natural Vitamin D early this afternoon. Usually I'm always out in the sun, either taking photos, gardening or surfing but the last 10 months in exile, with nadda surf, no gardening and not many photo sessions my vit D levels dropped way low.. looking to boost them up naturally now, fingers crossed hopefully soon I can get back out on the water too. Being sick is a pain.

Keep Dunedin Beautiful Litter Pick


St Clair & Kilda Beach Cleanup
Saturday 18th of September at 2.30pm - meet at the locked John Wilson Gates
Sunday 19th September at 10.30am - meet at the Shark Bell, St Clair

check out the facebook link and register your attendance
organised by Chloe & Tony Denley

he says:
"Dunedin people (or NZ wide if you want to organize a wee group for your local area) - I organized a group of us last year to have a litter pick down in St Kilda...... It wasn't the biggest turnout but we still managed to get over 5 big bags of rubbish!

Was hoping about going big and doing the whole stretch of St Clair/ Kilda on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of September.... Probably working in groups of 2 so one can collect the recyclable and the other general landfill waste.

Bags and gloves will be provided by the DCC and the bags will be collected from the normal litter collection the following week.

The Saturday I'll be working until 1pm hence a 2.30 start but those who may be only able to do the Saturday are welcome to start a group earlier and i will either join or continue on later.

The Sunday I will be starting at 10.30am.

For those of you not local to Dunedin maybe you know of schools or groups who would be interested in this week.. If so all information can be found on the website.."

Previous rubbish collection by Tony last year just one day at St Clair beach.

RIP - Clarke


Today Caitlins' beloved guinea Pig Clarke was put to sleep after a long and immensely loved life a few months short of his 6th birthday.
He was old, tired, blind and in pain from failing health. Full of character to the last minute it was an extremely hard decision, he has now been laid to rest at the bottom of the garden and we plan to buy a Rhododendron to plant above his resting site.

Above: Born on the 29th of November 2004.
His Father was my beloved Floyd, and is survived by his mother Ishana

Above: When Clarke was just a few months old he was already completely devoted to Caitlin. His favorite game was always to run and even jump big distances up onto her chest and snuggle under her chin. Berlow: Caitlin inside the boys' cage, Clarke used to love to run all over Caitlin like a mountain goat.

The video below is of Clarke and his half brother Fugly playing around with a pellet bowl. Only ever kept inside (and outside on nice summer and spring days) a two storied apartment with mirrored walls, fresh hay and blankets and teddy toys. Clarkes favourite one was the EXPOL Penguin, which he always cuddled up to at night.
