Further along we stopped for sandwiches, a cool drink, more photos, then went to the Rangitikei River outlet just north of Tangimoana.
Kapiti Island in the distance, and closer up, an English Pointer, who very nicely stood still
for his photo shoot!!!
On our way back to the wagon Luca and Oscar whizzed by on the bike.
Luckily they stopped where their family was, and so politely gave permission for photos. Thanks Luca,
That is the BEST SHOT of the day. Hope you do read the blog and see yourself in photo and print.
Hugh, with melting ice-creams, BP Surf Rescue, with the lookout perched high on his chair.
Patterns formed after sand erosion. Driftwood was everywhere, high up,
low down, some not far from the high tide water line.
Anyone can surf, even the dogs. They are there, one white, one brown, so enjoying the frolics, the darker brown one came out first , the white one harder to find in the sea.
There was a heron in the wetland area. And in the small estuary, an area so safe for the younger ones, was a young lady , a very capable paddler.
Oscar’s friend lay quietly, and very soon they all went home.
A great day, with the heat about 30 degrees Celsius. I was so lucky, Hugh handed over the driving to me,
the sand was firm, no banks to go up, no deep water to cross. I enjoyed that so much. Thanks.Hugh.
Quotation of the day, from Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron, Poet Laureate, 1809-1892
“ And the sun went down, and the stars came out far over the summer sea”
