On The Way Back From Invercargill

…I nipped thru the Catlins…IMG_6636

…Slope Point , southern most tip of the South Island, it’s bloody windy there…

…all the time, judging by the trees….

…Waipapa Point is further back down the coast towards Inver’s & is no less exposed…IMG_6628

…with the added attraction of adjacent pinnipeds…. IMG_6626

…they’re stacked like cord wood on the beach….IMG_6630IMG_6629IMG_6632…and this one, upwind from the “pile” & myself, definitely smelt the worst…

Keith Richards In Store… . . . MY Store

…you could well understand  my surprise on Sunday, when I was informed by some first time customers that they’d just visited a local beach and that Keith Richards was having a nap in the car…..

…Keith Richards, I said, THE Keith Richards…

…yes, in person…

…if he’s awake before you leave could you invite him in for me??, I asked….

…of course, they said, in fact, by the sound of that car alarm, he’s awake and moving around the vehicle now….

…(what!?)…

…so out they go and they’re back in a flash with Keith Richards….IMG_1818

 

…yes, THAT  Keith Richards….

…sigh.

 

…(thank you Hayden & Jo for letting Keith Richards come visit…please don’t let on to him about the cheeky photo I took of him next to the palm tree…y’know…like the one the other Keith Richards fell out of whilst on holiday down this way…giggle).
