The lazy day adventure of Little Bo Peep

with 2 comments

Had another steampunk adventure this past weekend with north island steampunks, having a picnic at beautiful Shakespear Regional Park on the Whangaparoa Peninsula. It was a perfect day in a perfect location. Perfect for all sorts of mischief, and more than a wee bit of mayhem…

18JanPicnic-1 Little Bo Peep seems a bit under the weather, but the doc seems to have the cure for what ails her in his bag of tricks. 18JanPicnic-20Our Miss Peep is feeling so much better and enjoying herself as she takes in the invigorating sea air.

18JanPicnic-31I wonder what will happen next?

Good morning, Auckland…

It was a very unusual morning, the start of a very unusual day. And after that day, life got even stranger. So it goes. Not complaining or anything. Just saying.

Muriwai Beach

with 4 comments

 

Muriwai is one of my favourite places on the planet… It’s beauty and fierceness are indescribable. Every time I am there, I am shocked by it and as I leave I am planning my next trip. It’s only an hour from home, so it’s not that difficult. The seabirds are incredible, here are two – a gannet with nesting material in its beak. This is a massive bird, with a metre or more wingspan. On the bottom is a Caspian Tern. I am pleased with this shot, though I wish it were a bit sharper, but they fly like bullets, so this is good – especially since he’s got a bit of dinner for the kids in his beak!

In between, a couple of landscapes and to-die for sunset.

I love Muriwai!

Virtual bouquet

Flowers 2

Beautiful late spring day. Had lunch in the village with a friend and snapped these as I walked home. Sent them to her as a virtual bouquet, but thought I’d share them with you, too.

The dock of the pond

Nice little dock, no boat in sight. Nice reflection.

Got a little closer, like how I can see the stuff growing from the bottom

Thought I’d walk out to the edge. Got grabbed by these willow branches… kinda spooky…
