Since I read the last issue of Donna Hay Magazine, I’m dreaming to spend a week-end on the beach ! Pictures are so romantic !

I appreciate anyway, their sense of reality, showing ‘backstage’ , how and what the team had to stand -rain and chill- to shot these lovely pictures !

Meanwhile we’ll be able to show you Castlepoint or Riversdale beach, I will just share this not-so glam but nice urban patch of green: Waitangi park. Renamed from the stream that runs through, the park is located on Wellington waterfront, next to Te Papa national museum.

It’s the first park of this kind, I see here. I mean it’s not this typical English garden with old trees, perfect lawn and green everywhere. No, this park is modern, structured and human hand is felt through straight pathway, surprising sculpture, use of concrete and skate pipe area. Built in 2006, the park was designed by Wraight Athfield Landscape and Architecture, one of the biggest and award-winning practice in New-Zealand.
