Otago Bay Sunset

Otago Bay Sunset
Otago Bay Sunset,
originally uploaded by Mad Shutter-bug.
This view of Otago Bay, New Zealand photographed just after sunset returning to our B&B in Dunedin from seeing the Penquins. Why, you might ask (or not) am I posting a photograph made five years ago tomorrow? Because due to the vagaries of the International Date Line it actually was today, at least in the sense that we woke up on 9/12 to the news of what currently transpired in NYC.


One more on Flickr, taken the morning of 9/11 New Zealand time. Follow the link above.

Wow. Were you stranded there due to the groundings?

A friend of mine was stuck in Europe with no money. Like so many of us, he had budgeted to spend all his trip money, and then hop the flight home. His flight home was on 9/11.

Nice pic. I'm trying to avoid most of the coverage today.

No, we were not stranded though people we know were. We planned on a full month, September. First week was an OR Nursing conference in Chch, then we started our driving tour. Friends who spent only a couple extra days and then headed home, they were grounded. By the time we came home (9/28), commercial flights resumed.

So peaceful looking, compared to what was going on here--I'm in NJ so not too far from it. It was only by chance that I saw it on live TV that morning, crashing into tower 2 ( I worked 11-7 shift back then)

That's beautiful.
I have a friend who grew up in NZ and we have talked about the wildlife there.
