|Here is the upper half of the Manorburn Dam, we are currently in the tail end of winter so the ice is starting to melt but this shot shows that %90 of it is still frozen over.||
Another angle of the frozen dam, taken from the observation area. The other day when we were here there was people on the ice playing hockey and skating around.
|A closer look. There are random spots where there is no ice and its just water so i think i'll stay on land for now and maybe go out on it next year when it re freezes.||I laugh every time i go past our letterbox. Before leaving Dunedin we bought a letter box that is not far from the size of the average city letterbox , but out here in the country everyone has these huge big manly looking letterboxes and it makes our one (the one under the letterbox to the right) look like a play hut for ya pet hamster, so i think i might have to throw that one away soon and buy something that isn't as embarrassing hehe.|
|Took a trip to Clyde today (15min drive from Alex) just to be nosey and stopped off at the clyde dam, certainly looks like a hover destination to me||Heres another angle of the Clyde dam, the water is so smooth and calm it would be a shame to mess it up... but i will be soon hehe|
