I cannot thank eldest child for choosing to live in a city that allows for the most challenging jet lag of all destinations that I have encountered. I don't get stressed if I wake early, but I do get very tired, and that affects my brain in an adverse way.
- day one; wake 3.30am
- day 2 wake 4 am convinced that it is dawn.....but oh so wrong.
- day 3 wake 4.30; ah ha; moving in the right direction....
- day 4 wake 3.50 hmmmm
- day 5 wake 4.30 ; I give up. I want to go home...
- day 6 on plane to Auckland; breakfast served at 03.30 here we go again......
- day 7 wake 05.00 luxury item; getting it cracked now
- day 8 wake 06.00 YAY! I might be even be able to function when I start work tomorrow
Suffice it to say that I have been unable to string any words together for this blog, or even decide what to post.
|while most are sleeping|
Should it be trees in the city?
|trees in the city 1|
|trees in the city 2|
Or should it be Vancouver and Stanley Park in the fog on a very cold and frosty walk before breakfast?
|Stanley Park 2|
|Stanley Park 3|
|trees and crows|
|the last leaves of autumn|
Or it could be 'Orange on Nelson'
Eldest child walks to work on this street daily. I joined her on my last day and in my jet lagged stupor decided to focus on the cheery colour orange on the return journey.
|orange on nelson 1|
|orange on Nelson 2|
|Orange on Nelson 3|
|orange on Nelson 4|
|the strange bolted cones of Nelson Street|
|more orange on Nelson|
|micro cones cover tree stumps on Nelson.|
As you can see, I have not been able to choose, so have shown them all.
And my favourite is the bird seen on a city side street. Which doesn't fit any of these themes.

Got to go now; I forgot to pack any socks, and it is very cold here in the New Zealand 'summer', so I am off to the shops.
