On our way there we came across (closed Sunday, Monday & Tuesday) one of the coolest antique places I'd seen in a while - and we have Front street's 'Antique Alley' just down the hill from us here in New West - so yeah..."Napiers Country Antiques"**. I would love to get back out there on one of their 'open' days but I fear for my bank account! ****contact info down there...
So, what do you say? Onto pictures? There are a lot. You might want to get a nice cuppa and biscuits to keep you company.

One comment on these planes. Although they are - for the most part - war machines, they are engineering marvels and awe-inspiring to look at. To me anyway. And I'm very glad that there are museums like this tiny one and a slew of others all around the world that are preserving the history of these amazing birds.

|The good old Patullo Bridge. It's so sad how decrepit they've let her get.|
I would love to see her turned into a tourist destination.
