Look Up, Look Down
for Week 40
For those of us with enough ‘life experience’ to remember…
In February 1980 I was in Christchurch, New Zealand, ending a three-week camping holiday.
Even back then airlines suffered from delays.
One of my fellow campers mentioned that the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra was performing Jonathan Livingston Seagull that night. Was I interested?
So off we jogged, yes jogged, to the Christchurch Town Hall. Now a Town Hall sounds like a reasonably small venue, doesn’t it? However, the Christchurch Town Hall can, or could, seat 75 more patrons than the Sydney Opera House. Or were those Kiwis pulling my leg again? And after the show we ran back to our hotel in time to catch a bus out to the airport for our 0100 flight out of Christchurch.
Our early morning flight allowed me to catch an early morning train back to Warrnambool, about three hours from Melbourne. I remember it being rather surreal as when talking to locals our experience of the previous night was still fresh in my mind. I am sure no-one believed me when I said “Last night I saw a performance of Jonathan Livingston Seagull in Christchurch.”
These shots were taken at Point Richards at Port Arlington on the Bellarine Peninsula, yesterday, Friday, May 23.
One last thing, these photos are best viewed at this size. A couple are definitely not fit for enlarging.
