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 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.
Heres some kids building a volcano on the Mount Maunganui Beach :) it was deep enough for them to stand in the middle up to the oldest boys waist. He was good enough to pose for me but I was in a hurry so it was really badly exposed but I like this shot too.
