Hawkes Bay - Cam Theme - 20

My work takes me to the Hawkes Bay area on a regular basis, so this trip I decided to share some photos from last weeks trip.
Being heavily time constrained, I only took photos when there was a quick moment. I think this has resulted in a good mix of different views for this CAM theme.

As usual,

There are 11 pics in this week's "CAM" - 10 from me and one guest photo.

If there is a particular suburb or Wellington icon you would like to see - it just may already be on my blog. Check the top right of this main page to search it out.
Feel free to comment on any image...

Scandi Superette, Upper Norsewood.
My car was in need of fuel and this was the only bowser in the town. The story behind its existence is one for special mention - how a community can rally together to keep essential services after big business decides they are not worth the upkeep...
Co-owner, Ella Domper is passionate about this community and the Norwegian decendants who came to this land.

This is from my friend, Ray Theron, in Melbourne, Australia.
His website RAYSCAM is a constant source of inspiration...
