A day at the races

I was lucky enough to be in Wellington for a meet at Trentham  race course , where ever I travel I try to catch a local race day, you always get to see a slice of life.

 Trentham is set in the picturesque Hutt Valley and the weather was co-operating.

 The girls were showing off their assets,

 and the gents looked rather natty too.

I always have a little flutter, but alas, the gods were not with me until the  last race when I managed to place. 

Just about (but not quite) paid for the day.

Thank you Sam.


  1. I love to watch the horses and athletes...and the 'slice of life'!!!

  2. People watching can be so much fun. Enjoy youself.

  3. Welcome to NZ - I hope you'll enjoy your 2 month stay!!

    Trade Me and garage sales could be good for finding your vintage bits and bobs - have fun!

    I'm your newest follower and I hope you'll pop me a visit sometime and I 'll get out my prettiest teacups - I'll make some Anzac biscuits!!!
