Put on your warmest jacket and hat and gloves and come for a walk with me. The sun is shining but the wind is cutting , so walk briskly.
We are walking along the Omokoroa Peninsula, through streets of houses then across the reserve, along the cliff top where through the shadows and the trees you can see small boats of every type and in the distance Mt. Maunganui. ( usually my photos show the Mt. from the other side ) As we emerge from the trees at the bottom of the hill small coloured row boats are propped unused against a pole waiting for Summer. The tide is way out.The wharf is exposed but the barge that crosses to Matakana Island, is filling with an assortment of vehicles and people.
There that took 50 minutes; I hope you warmed up and feel invigorated after your walk.
( Omokoroa Peninsula is about 7 kms away from where I live , going West away from Tauranga direction . )
