'Time and place / as elusive as air / as solid as this ground / I stand on. / Here, where I am placed / at any one time'.
I strolled in here, unsuspecting ... poetry-thursdaying actually ... and I thought 'It can't be ... it's New Zealand' and this homesick kiwi became more homesick.I'll read on but thanks for posting the pics ... they're delicious ... meanwhile, I'm living in Belgium, missing NZ
I was in a bar in New Orleans a couple of years ago when I met a woman who recently returned from NZ. She had traveled extensively, but insisted that it was the most beautiful spot on earth. How fortunate you are there between your beach and your harbor.
What beautiful pictures. ;-)
Would that beach be St Kilda or St Clair? And the harbour shot must be somewhere near Andersons Bay where my greatgrandparents are buried - or am I off the mark?I knew someone in Colorado who was sad that she had to choose between mountains and sea - here in Christchurch it is fifteen minutes to the beach and less than two hours to the mountains (driving that is). That's why I like living in New Zealand
a wandering woman - Now you just get yourself back here!! ;)patry francis - I know it!cyn - Thanks - taken the old-fshioned wayCatherine - You are right on the button - bullseye. Yes, I like being close to both the mountains and the sea too - lucky we live in such a skinny country eh!!
Hmm. My country is fat. Waaaa.
Oooooh, look at all that lovely water! Those are beautiful photos.
lynn - Never fear my dear - I suspect that where you live, both mountains and ocean are within reach ..;)debr - Thank you I was pleased with how they turned out - the secret lies in picking the right day and the right time of day, I think ... but I'm no expert (she says, both hands up, palms turned outward) :)
Hi Chief B,Wonderful pictures. Such beauty. Enjoy, treasure, and appreciate. I'm glad to be a small part of your world so far away.Regards
belle - You're so sweet - thanks - I just love that word appreciate - I was just thinking today how much I 'appreciate' my life! What is it they say about great minds? You and me kiddo! (And I do enjoy and treasure as well.)
You do have some amazing choices where you live. How grand!
How beautiful - What wonderful choices for a walk!Photos are so inviting!
Gorgeous views Chiefbiscuit. Are they recent (i.e. wintry) photos? They look so peaceful.
What a beautiful country you live in, Chiefbiscuit! Almost (!) as beautiful as where I live in Ireland ;¬)Thanks for dropping by mine and I'll add you to my links too. Can't believe it's the other end of the world as well as the opposite season to me. Summer here is temporarily a scorcher - not what we're used to. I should get my finger out and take some pictures!Take care!
January - yes I feel lucky most of the time - except in summer when we tend to be moderate rather than terrifically summeryendment - Thank you - you are invited anytime!Clare - Quite recently - autumnal rather than wintry. We havn't a digital camera so it's a slower process for us ...cailleach - Thanks and welcome and yes! Ireland is just as beautiful I'm sure! You take care as well.
Is that a harbour, or some heaven on earth?
