Yarn Bombed

After yesterdays smashing weather, today as expected was the opposite.  The fire was lit early which led to an indoor day mainly.  Doug made Roast Cauliflower Soup, deliciousness !
I snuck out for an hour to photograph some of our towns architecture for my Zoom session tomorrow and while looking around came across this guy and another in extra....very topical.....a yarn bomber in our midst.

This guy is Captain Henry Cain (1816 -1886) and sits outside the Landing Service building (which is now a bar and restaurant), the sea once came up to the buildings doors.  One of Timaru's earliest residents, was born in England in 1816, went to sea at age thirteen, was trading between Australia and New Zealand for twenty years in the 1840s and 1850s probably was trading via Melbourne.
