Easter Weekend

Hope you all had a great weekend.
The weather has been gorgeous over here, closer to summer than autumn really. These images express the spirit of the past days which can be summed up in one word: Outdoors. Paprika and I enjoyed barbecue, bush walk, waterfront stroll and farmers market…
I can’t help, but share with you part of the view on top of mount Kaukau, where we ate our picnic on Easter Sunday…

I’ll be back soon to share one delight of autumn, but until then I’d like to specially thank WordPress for the Freshly Press of that post and give a warm welcome to all my new followers. Great to have you on board !
And many thanks as well for your response to my previous post, it means a lot to me !


Summer Sampling

This is the time when you want to spend much more time outside than in.
Sea breeze, sand on our feet and a brand new sunhat. A relax Christmas lunch on the beach, after a generous Christmas Eve dinner.
And the following days kept on at a leisure pace…
Walk to Battle hill summit and a grand view to enjoy as a reward.
Picnic nearby the river under a shady tree…
And loosing the notion of time. Just what holidays are made for.
Wherever you are, hope you’re enjoying your Holidays too.

Let’s go down a narrow and winding road to a little village called Makara.
The interest of this seaside village is not really the pebble beach, but rather the view to enjoy after walking along the coastline and then climbing up the steep hills.
On a clear day, you get a glimpse of the Marlborough sounds on the other side of the strait. And to fully enjoy the serenity of the place, always choose a windless day, as it can be very exposed.

For me, what gives also some charm to this place is the little valley where the road passes along green pastures and follows the gentle stream running to the sea.
It’s just half an hour from the CBD, but you feel totally immersed in the country.

Depending on the season, I like to see how the light, vegetation and colours give a different feeling to this place yet with a constant sens of harmony.
