Across the Harbour

After taking the train to Williamstown, having lunch, and getting some great photos with the cannons, m’Lady and I wondered if we could manage some photos of me relaxing on the embankment and looking out across the harbour. Don’t try, don’t get, right?

In Williamstown you get a glorious view (at least from this park) across the harbour to the Melbourne CBD. And, from where we sat to eat lunch, we could see the path before us, dogs and people and bicyclists using the path, and a whole lot of seagulls! What you can’t see is the embankment – because it’s on an angle down to the water:

Fist Me All Year

It’s the fourth annual International Fisting Day (well, it is in the US – it was yesterday in New Zealand), and I’ve had some amazing fisting experiences this year – so now seems like a great opportunity to share them. This year has been all about give and take, and when it comes to hands in *cough* new places, that’s never been more true!

January

Take yourself back to the very first day of 2014. Do you remember what you were doing?

Breathing in Style

Very shortly after meeting Hylas I was introduced to his gas masks. Much like full-face hoods, I found them somewhat intimidating at first – when his expressions were covered up, I worried I couldn’t follow what he was enjoying or not. But as I got to know him better I learned what fun gas masks can be (and trusted us both to work out communication when non-verbals were limited).

It’s kinda good I like them, because he has a few:

Loose Cannon

So this is it – the final day of September and my final post for Scavenger Hunt month. And what do you know? The photo I showcased in my link image (this one right here)

is from the location I’m sharing today. Now that’s timing!

Making an Exchange

When m’Lady and I took our day-trip to Williamstown, on my last visit to Melbourne, we also ran across rather a few Scavenger Hunt locations – some of which we were able to successfully capture, and some which we put in the ‘too-hard’ basket.

But this one – what is this one?

Location #100!

It’s taken rather a few years, but I am finally posting my one hundredth Scavenger Hunt! Only one other person has done so many, and the amazing KaziGrrl is still rather a few ahead of me – which doesn’t stop me scampering to catch up

For my hundredth, it’s the final series of photos Hylas took of me out by Lake Pupuke (the first one being at the lake itself, and the second by a shipping container). How could we miss out the Rowing Club? It is a sports club, after all…

Well Contained

When wandering around Lake Pupuke, Hylas and I discovered a 20ft shipping container – presumably used to store kayaks and the like, given there was a boat ramp right next to it. That was our guess anyhow. But what a convenient place for a Scavenger Hunt!

I thought that the side of the container would be better than the front – those dragonboaters were still going strong in the waterway across the other side of the car park.

Explosion Crater

Also known as an absolutely stunning lake here on Auckland’s North Shore – and very well known to both locals and anyone who’s read (or see the TV series or movie) ‘Under the Mountain‘ by Maurice Gee.

Lake Pupuke has lovely bushland around part of it, and the famous Pumphouse Theatre – originally a pumphouse – on its shores. The afternoon Hylas and I visited there were dragonboaters practicing, and a fair number of people ambling around.

What a Poser!

There are a lot of bills (aka advertising posters) plastered around Auckland, albeit for the most part in designated spaces. And one thing they do is brighten up the area – it’s definitely not a boring white wall any more once these are up!

Directly around the corner from the phone booth was a whole mess of them, and when I spotted one (with my surname!) that showed a model in a certain pose, I knew I was going to have fun with this Scavenger Hunt

Making a Call

I couldn’t tell you the last time I used a payphone – at least 15 years – but there’s still plenty of them out there! What I wanted to get for this Scavenger Hunt location, though, was a phone box that didn’t have a big sticker slapped across it advertising free-wifi in the area (that you could only use if you were with Telecom, now renamed Spark). Your basic phone booth, with three-side protection. That’s what I wanted.
