Lake Rotoiti

Lake NZ

Hi Everyone sorry I have not posted for awhile, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. We are currently travelling around New Zealand (South Island) and this Photograph at Lake Rotoiti was taken on a very wet and wind day. I had to have my brother hold an umbrella up over the camera. It was absolutely pouring down but I managed to get a fairly decent Picture.

Old Jetty

Myponga Beach

Just 60 Kilometres South of Adelaide you will find the small town of Myponga (Myponga is a Kaurna word meaning high cliffs) population about 540. This is what remains of the jetty that was build in 1860.

Here is just one story attached to the jetty

A jetty was built in 1860 but it’s official opening was marred by tragedy. 

“The jetty was very crowded and a woman nursing a baby got pushed off onto the rocks. She cushioned the fall of the baby which survived, but unfortunately she was killed.

The jetty serviced a healthy shipping trade for 30 years exporting local wattle bark for leather tanning, livestock and wheat. But eventually the ketch trade weaned and a big blow tore the jetty apart in 1900. Now it’s a photographer’s dream.

Napper’s Ruins

Riverland South Australia

Located on the north side of Lake Bonney, Napper’s Ruins once stood strong as a hotel built for former workers of Cobdogla Station. It was originally called Lake Bonney Hotel and consisted of 11 rooms that included a well stocked bar and an eating room that could cater for 12 people. The hotel is now nothing more than ruins and includes interpretive information around the site.
