Totally out of order now as we go back to Ohaupo and our stay at Jacana B&B. This is one place I personally love to stay at because I can photograph birds from the deck outside our room – no walking required! The setting is just lovely. Jacana is built beside a large stand of […]
Today’s images are a random mix from last evening’s walk around the reserve. I don’t have a story to go with them other than they were there and so was the camera. Enjoy!
A friend and I went for a look over at the inlet today as it was such a lovely sunny still day at home. Boy was it different over the other side of the hill! The wind was up, the water was chopping and the wind surfers were out in force! There were very few […]
