Curling at Naseby

Yesterday I was in Naseby, a very attractive little town about 40 mins away. It is unusual for New Zealand in that it has an all year round ice rink and now it is opening a luge, one of those long twisting slides of ice that you plummet down in a toboggan, feet first. In Naseby it is set amongst conifers, looking extremely reminiscent of Colorado, especially as it is very much a gold mining town from the later 1800’s.

When I visited the ice rink, curling was in progress.
