I entered the Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet photo competition again this year and managed to get my best result so far with winning photos in the Recreation and Artistic categories along with three highly commended photos in the Recreation, Artistic and Scenic categories (I’d previously won the Wildlife category back in 2013). Alayna and I […]

Walking at Zealandia: Camping at Kaitoke: Chinese New Year: Plimmerton fish and chips: Walking in Wellington on my birthday: Back to Zealandia: Night time at the Pauatahanui […]

Photo by Brendon & Keryn A matuku-moana (white faced heron) after a quick shake, feathers all ruffled. Just a quick one, a photo of a matuku-moana or white faced heron that was all ruffled up after a quick shake in the sun. A probable entry for next years GOPI photo competition.

They’ve done away with the silly voting scheme from last year as well which is good. I’ve also recently found out […]
The opportunity finally presented itself (good weather, the tide was right, we were both available and willing) for a chance to walk the coastal path between Pukerua Bay and Plimmerton on the weekend just gone. We caught the train from Plimmerton to Pukerua Bay and then headed down to the Bay before following the coast […]
