New dog friends...


Despite us having an overcast sun showery day today we still got out for our weekly beach walk. Wasn't too cold and the tide was out but I did get a couple of happy excited inquisitive dogs come up to us to say hi. The one in the distance had a big stick in his mouth he was trying to drag across the sand....

Stormy skies for us right now...


We have at least 3 days of cruddy Winter weather here right now so before it started to turn nasty I got out for one of my walks on Wednesday morning and took this photo of the gray sky with sun trying to peek through the clouds.  True hibernating time I think...

The knitted tree is all lit up!


Remember the Kitted Tree I posted about last week?  I walked past it this morning and it turns out the owners of the club it sits in front of have strung lights in the branches which were turned on and sort of glowy against the sky. The forecast here is meant to be alot of wind and rain so far the sun has been trying to peek through the clouds.

Hope you enjoy your day. Linking up with Wednesday around the world :-)

The Kota Lestari container ship is in port...



This morning after I pushed myself to get out walking again first thing (with frosty air coming out my nose) I happened to see a container ship in the distance coming into port. This one is called the Kota Lestari and it's originally come from Port Kelang then Singapore into Auckland then down here to Tauranga. It was moving very fast so I had to be quick in order to take a photo.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday for this one :-)

Hamilton Gardens - Victorian Flowers


Sooo right now it's been bitterly cold, the wind chill has me wrapped up in winter jerseys, my favourite scarf and beanie so I thought I'd share some photos of a wedding we attended over a year ago...in the Summer of 2015. 


These photos were taken at Hamilton Gardens - in the Victorian Flower Garden to be exact. It was one of those humid sticky roasting Summer days we sometimes get.


Hamilton Gardens is a huge area consisting of over 54 acres of public gardens for the public to visit and enjoy. It was first started in the 1960s and was originally a rubbish dump covered in blackberries.


The wedding itself was held inside the actual Victorian greenhouse so there was loads of pretty colours to be amongst.


Outside though there is a lily pond, specimen trees, lawns, formal gardens and curved walks.


In the meantime I'll be wrapping up warmly here and dreaming of slightly warmer weather.
