Week 16: Wairarapa coastal treasures

Over on the Wairarapa coast, the beaches seem endless and the sea is all you can see. During the day the weather altered dramatically and we walked for hours under changing skies. This is my tribute to Joe Cornish:

And this one is to Craig Potton, or maybe Andy Goldsworthy...

How appropriate is this for an Easter walk at Castlepoint?

And the way through the night is lit by a less than divine light, but no less valuable for all that.

Follow the orange triangles - these mark walkways here in New Zealand and there are times when you can be tremendously pleased to see them. This is on the Honeycomb Rock Track.

Some folorn tramper appears to given up the (one-legged) ghost.

And this is one of the Honeycomb Rocks - who'd have thought that a simple rock could be so colourful?

Close-up it looks like fine filigree lace or flying buttresses.

Here are some of the things we liked but resisted buying in Greytown - a bone-handled cutlery set from an antique shop...

Kittens from the pet shop...

And a line-up of rubber ducks all in a row!
