Surfcasting at Maketu beach

One thing I like to do is to drive to places I've never been to. On our recent trip to Maketu Beach it was a very windy late Winter's day and not many people so when I spotted this surfcaster with his line in the tide I sat down on the sand and got some pretty good shots - looks like the seagulls were seeing some life in the water too and were hoping for a small snack :-)

People watching on the beach

Those rare winter days when it's fine outside means it's a good chance to go for a walk. For us we like to venture to the beach nearby, about 5 minutes walk away and such a good chance to people watch. Do you do that too? This shot was taken of some friends with their dogs enjoying the waves and grandparents taking their grandchild in the stroller. Unfortunately today is back to rain again - would've been perfect to have been at home with a good book, such is life when you have to work :-)

Grapefruit anyone?

We've had too many gloomy winter days here so when a bit of sunshine popped it's head out from behind the clouds today we took the opportunity to walk through the neighbour and onto the beach.

Opposite our apartment is a little house on the corner and hanging on the old rickety white fence were bags laden with Grapefruit along with a clear sign - think they were being offered for $5NZD per bag, pretty cheap really but these are way too sour for my liking. Do you like them, if not what is your favourite citrus fruit?

One of those nights.....

So even though we're still getting light coatings of ice on our cars in the morning, by the time I leave work at night it's not so dark. A few nights ago I sped off the motorway on the way home and parked my car at the local Tauranga Marina to capture this sunset, if you look real close you might be able to see a couple of keen people with their fishing lines :-)

What happens when you avoid the traffic...

On the way home today after work in an effort to miss the 5 o'clock traffic I stopped down by Tauranga's waterfront. Late Winter colour, peaceful calm waters and chilly air. In this shot I manage to catch children walking away from one of the piers down there, they weren't there long so maybe it was getting a bit cold for them?
