Sailor’s Barometer, Parking and A Maori Proverb

02 Feb

Last night we could see that a storm was on its way as the water in the Sailor’s Barometer was rising. We heard the winds in the night and there has been a hoolie blowing all day. This afternoon, the water in the Barometer had risen to the top and overflowed and we have Met Office weather warnings out for storms on Friday and Saturday so who knows what it will show tomorrow!



The tide was full in as I went to park on Exchequer Quay for singing this morning and the only space left was right at the front facing the river. I took this photo from inside my little VW Beetle. It felt almost too close for comfort!


A Blogger friend posted this Maori proverb today. I find it a little more light in the darkness. Thanks Lou Ann and KSBETH.

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”  ~  Maori proverb

Let us all turn to face the sun, together and in strength.
