Southland - Bluff
An evening's drive into Bluff is a drive to the bottom of the world.
Here we found a fire
drill in progress and took the opportunity to trade brother Dave's fireman
t-shirt for a Bluff variety fire shirt. All of the firemen were anxious
to get Dave's shirt. When we asked if they would trade they started pulling
off their sweaty shirts to trade the captain hollered "Not a sweaty
one! John, you go back to the station and get your good one!" John
hopped in the fire engine (an El Dorado type car/truck) and peeled off
down the street to return moments later with his red shirt. The gesture
was so genuine that we were really pleased. However, the pilled shirt
left a little to be desired.
