Low tide II

with 7 comments

Why is it that low tide always seems so mournful? Beach flicks are always shot at high tide. There was no low tide on Bay Watch (not that I ever watched two episodes of Bay Watch, mind you, though I had to watch one to find out what the fuss was about.)

I’m not even sure why anyone would haul a boat of any size to Titirangi Beach (my beach!)… it’s really a mud flat beach – you’d have to haul that thing out 50-100 metres at high tide before you could get into it. But someone did… and there it was yesterday, looking so very sad and lonely, waiting for the water to return.

South Island Oyster Catcher

with 4 comments

Titirangi Beach is just down the hill from me. From time to time I like to take my long lens and go spy on the birdlife. I don’t think I’ve run into one of these before. There were three of them there, happily feasting on our local delicacies. However, they were insistent on presenting their hind quarters – and the closer I got, the less they would cooperate. A little myopic, but lovely little sea birds.

Love from Titirangi Beach

with 7 comments

Went for my constitutional, started out at at French Bay to the east and decided to walk around Shag Point (where I nearly got caught in the incoming tide!) to Titirangi Beach and then hiked up the hill to get back home. These are some of the things I saw along the way. Fortunately, I had the long lens on the camera so I could get up real close.

This is one you really do have to click to see all the details…
