Gore, Southland. Once home of Creamota Porridge. No thanks to Goodman Fielder for closing the factory.
Gore. Host of the Country Music Gold Guitars awards.
Gore - surrounded by the Hokonui Hills, and yes there is a Hokonui Moonshine Museum.
The public toilets in Gore used to be divided into three: Men, Women, and Boys.
Nearby is the "Gore-Clinton highway", and the Old Mandeville Airfield Aviation Museum.
Gore, and the Mataura River that flows through it, featured in Dunedin writer Vanda Symon's first novel Overkill.
But the reason I'm going to Gore today is to visit the wonderful Eastern Southland Gallery with its John Money Collection and its Ralph Hotere Gallery.
Tonight there is a Peter Peryer event at the Gallery.
I love Peter Peryer's work. He is a NZ photographer deserving of superlatives - as you can see by the shots he generously uploads up on his blog.
