#Dunedin #NZ #ISIG

The next Dunedin ISIG meeting will be from 6pm to 8pm this coming Thursday, 30 Nov 2023. We'll be meeting at Ombrellos - - 10 Clarendon Street, near the Museum and the University.

Come along a little earlier, grab some food from the bar and a refreshing drink, and join the fun. No need to RSVP.

We have no specific agenda - I was going to talk about the recent ChCon but unfortunately wasn't able to get there, but I think we'll find enough to discuss!

Feel free to pass this message on to anyone you feel would be interested.

You might think it was common sense, but the Southern hospitals are asking visitors to stay away if they have Covid.

There are currently 25 Covid positive patients in Dunedin hospital, 5 in Southland and one in Lakes District.

Dunedin's loose mayor Jules Radich came down with Covid on Friday. While he's isolating (only for 5 days) the people he was circulating with on Friday have not been officially told.

Cr David Benson-Pope calls Radich "irresponsible" for not notifying his colleagues, and for downplaying the spike in Covid-19 cases spreading across the South right now.

Our mayor is a dick.

I often think about the neighborhood where I lived in Dunedin before I moved overseas. It had a nickname- "The Mental Health Triangle". But it has even a longer history than that name, it was once called the Devil's Half-Acre of Dunedin and a notorious slum. #Dunedin #NewZealand #aotearoa #Otepoti #History . You can find a lot of history about this place from old newspapers and clippings

Amazing #Spring #aster (I assume), a big mounded profusion of #mauve daisy flowers with yellow centres. Supported by a tall hire yard fence. #Dunedin, New Zealand. 01 November. #NewZealand #flowers #BloomScrolling

Front view of a huge mound of mauve aster flowers supported by a hire yard’s tall wire fence. The shape of this big mauve mound makes me think of a giant bean bag!
In this closer view we see masses of mauve-petalled starry daisy flowers, with yellow centres. This plant is laden with flowers – and there’s very few gaps.
Detail photo showing the densely packed mauve daisy flowers and their bright golden yellow centres. Crazy.. I’d no idea they get so prolific! Also.. I think of them as an autumn flower and don’t really associate them with spring – big mistake!
Side-on view, looking down the street with the mauve aster in the foreground spilling onto the footpath. Walking down there past the trees takes me back to the gas station. The aster bookended a long thin strip that had azaleas at regular intervals (also in bloom). Just the one aster though, but it stole the show!

As a student in late 80s/ early 90s B spent 6 years in #Dunedin—a name derived from Dùn Èideann, the Gaelic name for Edinburgh. This would be an opportunity to revisit half-forgotten places, but also to explore those places in and around the city that are harder to get to when you don’t have transport but do have coursework deadlines.

St Clair & St Kilda are contiguous beaches in South Ōtepoti | #Dunedin (📷1). Am I alone in finding the absence of demarcation irritating? St Clair has had an esplanade since 1870s; salt water baths opened 1884 but weren’t heated until 1960s (📷2). Viewed from the lookout at Lawyers Head, St Kilda is the less urbanised end (📷3). The beach here looks almost tropical (📷4).
