Peeking duck




There's this stormwater outfall near Te Papa. As stormwater outfalls go, it's not too bad - there's a reed bed behind it which renders it a lot less noxious than it could be. When the wind is high, the water gets blown back in sheets of spray. The ducks seem to quite enjoy the shower.

It's been a pretty typical Wellington day all round, actually. Blowing a gale, earthquake at 2am, aftershock at 4, and at least one ministry got pretty much nothing done all day.

I'd forgotten that about NZ...earthquakes as part of the typical 'weather'. Like a more genteel version of California.

Pacific ring of fire and all that. We wouldn't be here without it.

True that. Oh well, a bit of a knee trembler every other now & again, just makes it a bit interesting, what?!
