Sea, sky and serenity

The long-predicted rain has arrived and is expected to remain across the country for a few days, so I’m glad the Big T and I spent last evening at Muriwai Beach.

It wasn’t the most spectacular sunset we’ve ever seen, but we both felt refreshed by the combination of sea air and nature’s light show (and the gannet colony — but that’s another post).

    • Thanks Amanda. I have come to realise how lucky we are. I think I took beaches for granted for a long time, but now that they are so over-crowded much of the time, I appreciate the times when I can visit in relative peace.

    • Most NZ native trees are evergreens, but the early European settlers planted trees they’d brought so we do have lots of oaks and other deciduous trees. Parts of the South Island have a much more autumnal feel than here in the North. Our local climate is almost sub-tropical.
