Around The Bays

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…

Last sunday was a day spent by the sea.
The mild weather and the recent arrival of Paprika’s friend, were perfectly combined to enjoy the outdoors.

Walking on familiar path and favored spot, brought back memories of Summer 2010, when my niece M. was here.
I remember that unlike last Sunday, it was a fairly windy day. We walked on that same beach, our face lashed by the sea breeze and she started to sing ‘I believe I can fly‘…
I smiled thinking of those good moments and I collected a little bit of sand.
This way, I’m sure it’ll remind her this special time in New Zealand too when she’ll open my next letter…

And while I was deep in my thoughts, Paprika, trousers rolled up, soaked his feet in the chilled water…

Not being so foolhardy, I prefered to let my eyes being caught by details, colours and light…

Before starting the week-end, a series of pictures shot around the city…

I went yesterday for a little urban walk. It’s ages since the last one.
The weather was so pleasant, almost Spring-like, peppered with a bit of cool wind -of course !

No particular topic here, it’s just about randomness…
