The Tuesday walking group pause in Cook Street, Leamington, New Zealand this morning the 12th of January 2010 for a photograph. Behind them is Victoria Bridge (they have just crossed it from Cambridge beyond) which has spanned the Waikato River for 100 years. This walking group – there are others – has been in existence for twelve years.

The Waikato River between Cambridge and Leamington looking east / south and up river. Karapiro Hydro Dam is some 8-9 kms away up stream.
Final words on Nine To Noon this morning. A conversation between host Kathryn Ryan and guest, media commentator, Denis Welch. Trucks and media schenfreude.
Proud under her strenuous 24/7 365 workload our lovely 100 year old ‘high level bridge’ – the Victoria Bridge – at 8:15AM this morning, Tuesday the 8th of July 2008, coated in frost and cloaked with Waikato River mist. At both ends bridge guardians, men in Hi Viz, responsible for the day-to-day care and safe use of our toanga stand in the cold air and watch.
