Around The Bays

July 29, 2011

It was at the beginning of the week. After days of endless rain the sun brilliantly made an appearance in a cloudless sky. It felt like a crime to stay at home.

A lunch on the waterfront with Paprika and then I leisurely made the round of Wellington bays. The chilly wind was there, as usual, but it felt so good to be outside and breath fresh air. And the smell of the sea. Nothing like it...

Baches along the seashore always draw my attention with their catchy colours and quirky details. And to complete the picture, the ferry was leaving Wellington harbour heading South, where the beautiful snow-capped mountains of the South island could be noticed over the strait. Bliss.

I came back home all invigorated and ready to have a hot drink...


Gorgeous, and totally inspired me to actually maybe get out of the kitchen next weekend if the weather cooperates! Choey

Beautiful! I love the colors and light. Cheers, Rosa Rosa May
