About me

Industry Museums or Libraries
Occupation Librarian
Location North Shore, Auckland, New Zealand
Introduction With my interests in wildlife and the natural world, writing, and photography, this blog is my indulgence in experimenting with combining these elements. Follow me as I venture to new places, and revisit some special favourites. There is so much to enjoy, and yet to explore, on our wonderful Planet Earth. I also welcome your comments or stories of your own favourite places.
Interests Animals/wildlife, photography, reading, walking/hiking, travel, gardening, music, outdoor adventure, camping
Favorite Movies Dances with Wolves, Waterworld, Bull Durham (in fact, just about any Kevin Costner movie), Happy Gilmore, The Sound of Music, Country Strong
Favorite Music Country, 70s and 80s music, but almost anything except Heavy Metal
Favorite Books Many about wildlife, animals and wilderness travel, but special favourites include Call of the wild (Jack London), Merle's door: lessons from a freethinking dog (Ted Kerasote), Shadow mountain (Renee Askins), Wolves at our door/Living with wolves (also movies, by Jim and Jamie Dutcher)
