Mum and Summer Roses





I've been spending some days outside at work during my lunch hour and in the garden is a small selection of roses of pink and apricot coloured variety. They smell divine! And the "mum" plaque at the top was seen at Whakatane Hill Cemetery at while ago - someone obviously was well loved and missed...

Norfolk Pine reflections on Marine Parade


Gotta love early Summer mornings along Marine Parade, part of where I walk each day. This is a road along the beach that's lined with mostly posh multi-million dollar holiday homes.

As you can see on the left of the photo there's one that's been built and on the right are a ton of carparks as this area gets very very busy over the Christmas/New Year season - the beach is extremely popular. Lucky we live 5 minutes away so it doesn't take us long to walk if we want a swim :-)

Summer at Papamoa Beach




Summer is here at last - stinking hot heat, blowflies coming inside, afternoons sitting in traffic jams  - all these things rock.....not. So, it was so nice to be able to get out in the fresh air to nearby Papamoa Beach and walk along the sand.

It's now time to separate the winter clothes from the summer ones, put blankets back in the linen cupboard, start putting sunblock on and enjoy the long sunny days.

Enjoy your Friday :-)  Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

Bridge over the Kaituna River




Yesterday our Sunday drive consisted of something a little different....instead of sticking to the main highways, this time we drove around the little back roads and did a wee tiki tour. One place we ended up in was the Kaituna River and the bridge above it leads into nearby Papamoa.

Looked like there had been a number of hopeful graffiti artists down there trying to decorate the pillars and while we were there I got a quick moving shot of water skiers racing past enjoying the fast moving current of the river.

Bridge over the Ngamuwahine River


I really like this view - on our time at the Ngamuwahine River a couple of weeks ago we were getting ready to leave by driving across the road leading to the main highway and stopped to admire the scenery - so peaceful and scenic, what do you think of it?
