Love the fact that spring brings so many more beautiful things to focus on … …

Summer is coming …

Nothing quite like a day fishing at the bar (even if nothing was caught)


 


Wild Windy Raglan

The storm that was churning 1000km South West off New Zealand really did deliver the winds and swell they promised.  The ocean was amazing and there were times just standing up was a mission …


My new camera ….

Yay – I have moved into the realm of ‘a bit more serious than before’ photographer!  I have now got a new camera – Gotta love the Nikon!  I am so ‘in love’ with it and the photos I can now take … Here is a few of my ‘practice’ shots … what do you think?

Whaingaroa's very own 'Flash Mob'

This one is a shot of Whaingaroa’s very own “Flash Mob” that was organised to celebrate 350 day on Saturday 24 October 2009.  There were lots of events held around the world on this day to raise the awareness of the 350 campaign.  Check it out – it is an important issue that we ALL need to be aware of and do something about – after all – it is our future.

 

 

 

 

 


Childhood Memories …

Who hasn’t spent hours of their childhood (and hours since then too) rolling around on wheels of some sort.  Whether it be your old bike with the banana seat, your big brothers cast off wooden skateboard with the rock hard wheels or rollerskates.  I had the metal ones that you strapped on over your gum boots … …Ahhhh … those were the days, summer afternoons playing on the driveway on the skates, doing the splits on the steep part of the drive way with one foot on the ground and the other one on the run away skateboard!  Or having races with the neighbors while riding our bikes around the farm … Where has all the time gone? It only just feels like it was yesterday!

My niece had some of the funkiest roller skates, blue ones with yellow, red and white stripes and yellow wheels.  My daughters have loved these skates and have spent plenty of time rolling around in them, both inside the house and out … so all I need to do now is just look at these skates to bring all my childhool memories flooding back.

I hope you get the same wonderful experience as me … Enjoy the memories …

Daisies and limes

The lawn is covered with daisies and the limes are falling off the tree.

Daisies ...

Daisies ...

... limes ...

... limes ...

... and more daisies

... and more daisies

Then there’s all the other flowers bursting out in my garden enjoying the sun shining down and the fact that it is getting warmer

Almost feels tropical

… apparently the rain is on its way but hey, it’s spring after all!

Enjoy the sun while it’s shining 🙂


Sun is shining …

What an amazingly beautiful day we had in Raglan today.  Went to Te Mata for lunch (which was so good!) and walked around the garden.  Spring has certainly arrived and here is the proof …

It doesn't feel like spring until you have seen the calves
