Reflections on the Hoteo River - Kaipara Coast




Once in a while the teens and I go on roadtrips - this one was when we randomly drove down State Highway 16, off the beaten track from Wellsford through to Helensville. We stopped off at the Hoteo River and watched a couple of people walking in the low tide with their fishing gear. It was a clear Spring day with a chill in the air. People travel this way to avoid the main highway with all the busy traffic.

Enjoy those road trips, once they hit 'later' teens, the don't want to go. This looks like a really peaceful place to stop and enjoy.

hi Wayne, yes you're right, my teens are 16 and 14 and they are just going through that stage now where they don't want to go out, this photo was taken bout a year ago in Spring so there was hardly anyone around. thanks for your comment :-)

I always loved road trips with our son, there is something about a car where the conversation flows even more than usual. You got a pretty shot of the bridge there, lovely reflection.

What a lovely summery shot! The best shots seem to be on the unscheduled trips.

I love a good road trip, especially a spontaneous one! It's great that your teens still want to go with you!
