    • Thank you. It’s unrecongisable now. 4000 new houses have been, or are being, built, there are two schools, apartment blocks, and many of the road layouts have been changed. There are good things about the development, but I do feel sad at the loss of green space and useable land in this drive to over-populate Auckland. 🙂

      • I can understand that. So many of the old houses have been demolished – which I think is criminally wasteful. It will eventually develop a sense of community (I hope), but for now I feel very sad everytime I drive though the streets to get to the water.

    • 😦 not just subdivision; high density housing with very narrow streets. I think it is probably a “good” model of urban design but doesn’t challenge the assumption that Auckland “needs” more people. Especially at the cost of provincial economies. But that’s my hobby-horse. 🙂

    • Thanks Raewyn. It was a perfect morning to be out. The only other people around were a few men fishing. It’s proving to be a great spot for morning photos – the nearest place to me where I can face east and see water. 🙂
