NZ Labour weekend

This is Labour week-end here in NZ. That means, in theory, if you have a beach house, or bach, you should have headed out to it on Friday to open it up for the summer. 

The NZ bach was a wonderful tradition - there are still some around, but, in general, they have been replaced by the ubiquitous lifestyle beachfront house. 

Te Ara, the online encyclopedia has a feature on it as part of their bigger beach culture section. Well worth a look - here 

Baches on Flickr
I also found some lovely examples of the surviving real mccoy  on Flickr - here 

The week ahead. 
Meanwhile I am just back from the Melbourne trip - more on that through the week.
