On our evening wander Rachel was feeding the ducks. They all decided to follow her like she was some kind of messiah leading them to a new and fertile land… okay maybe it wasn’t that epic but heres what it looked like from the ducks point of view.
Rach and I went wandering yesterday afternoon to find a good place to take a shot of the sun setting over Breck. It seems to set about 5pm every night, almost like clockwork!
Just as our toes were starting to protest about standing in the snow for so long while we waited for the sun to dip below the mountain, I saw this horse and cart emerge around the corner I pounced on my remote and got this shot.
Once the shutter released I quickly packed up my tripod and camera and we headed off to D’vine Wine for some tastings. Great evening!!!
There is a stream/creek at Waiake Beach in Torbay that runs out to sea. This creek happens to not be as deep as its name suggests. I used to kayak down it with the scout group ‘Awatuna’. Waiake always reminds me of my friend Kareen who used to live just up from the beach :)
Anyway, while on the bank taking photos of a mammoth sized Pohutukawa I noticed the flowers of the Pohutukawa were already falling, leaving a red carpet on the sand.
This shot is looking towards the bridge that has the walkway alongside the creek.
I took some photos of pohutukawas this time last year for xmas cards. I wanted to do the same this year but went to the other end of the beach instead lol. I like Rangitoto Islands shape so used the Island as a nice backdrop with Waiake/Torbay Beach in the foreground.
I ate some bad pesto last night so Im off today trying not to let the alien in my belly rip its way out.
Anyway I needed some fresh air so I drove to the beach (Waiake / Torbay). While meandering all maudlin-like I noticed this rope climbing/playground thingie. I maneuvered my self under it and got the mess you see here.
