Blue skies over Mangawhai estuary and a fine Spring day
Here is the sight that greets me most mornings when I leave Mangawhai to drive to work 20 minutes away. This is part of the estuary that surrounds our town. Up until a few months ago the waterways here were being clogged up by mangroves but thanks to some very helpful volunteers big efforts have been made to pull them out.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of them removed. In the distance of this photo you can see what looks like a house. It's one of the cabins at the holiday park in the village where a few holiday makers and locals have their own little pieces of paradise.
