The holidays started with Easter, which down here in Dunedin is notorious for bad weather, but this year we have been blessed with the most amazing blue skied, sunny days. Talking about the weather can of course be a cliche, but it really does effect our day to day plans. Would you rather spend a day in bed with a bad bout of sniffles when its cold, rainy and dreary outside or when the sun beats through the windows, making a furnace of your bedroom? I'd pick the rainy day every time. But, when it's sunny I want to be outside listening to the birds, going for a walk or curled up with a good book under a tree, which is what I've been doing these last two weeks.
A couple of days ago we drove up and over the hill behind us to Back Beach. This is a little bay right next to Port Chalmers on the Otago Harbour less than 10 minutes drive from home. Enjoy the photos.

|For as long as I can remember there has been a flock of geese living here. Friendly ones, thankfully!|

Next post I will have my writer's hat firmly attached!
