I picked up an old bible in lovely little St Joseph's Anglican Church in Awanui. The church is right beside SH1, was unlocked and sitting on the pulpit were two very old bibles. I can't believe they weren't behind glass somewhere. Can you read the date it was presented to the Awanui Maori Church? May 2nd, 1887.
It opened itself at a marked page. I haven't the faintest idea what it said, it was written in Maori.
Thanks to my travel companion, GB for taking those photos for me after my battery died. We found this collection of old books at Mangungu Mission on our annual excursion north last year.
Who doesn't like to snuggle up under a blanket with a book? Coffee close to hand. On a cold day. Or, if you feel like it, even on a warm day. The day was warm when I found this lady sitting with a book beside the river in town. Maybe she wasn't well! To me she depicted the comfort of a book.
I have a feeling the FSO guys (who will be here) are going to have some great shots on this theme. Glad I'm not doing the Spotlights. Have fun with that, Peggy.
