Right, let's have a massive photo post!...
ABOVE: Karioitahi Beach, on the west coast out from Waiuku.
ABOVE: The hills above the beach at Karioitahi Beach, weathered by the winds and erosion. Quite neat!
ABOVE: another nice photo of Karioitahi Beach, taken from up the road a bit.
On our way to Glenbrook Beach, we stopped at the Lookout by the Glenbrook Steel Mill... where we saw these:
ABOVE: There were quite a few chooks, this mother was very protective of her chicks, and kept calling them to her.
ABOVE: These one's didn't listen too well and got fairly close to me. Cute little buggers.
ABOVE: The Steel Mill taken from Glenbrook Beach. A grim, colourless, dark and foreboding looking place.
ABOVE: Glenbrook boat ramp. That little 'pier' is for tying up ya boat we think.
Also at Glenbrook boat ramp:
ABOVE: I found the planks that were missing... and got Griffin to put them back.
ABOVE: That little 'pier' is only one plank wide...
ABOVE: One plank wide, but it didn't stop me walking along it. *smiles*
ABOVE: I love this photo.
ABOVE: And these. I like the nail and lichen. The kids too... sometimes! lol
Well... that's it for the day trip photos!
TODAY? Housework this morning, then Hospice Shop this afternoon.
Catch ya later...
At the shop. It's fairly quiet... found a few things!
OMG... I had to buy him!
The rest of today's Treasure:
ABOVE: a cute little tablecloth for the small square table outside ... to be used in summer for BBQ's etc.
ABOVE: another truck for the toy box.
ABOVE: a nice jacket/top for Brylee... it has a removable hood and nice detailing front and back. And some awesome tassles. Don't ask me what I want them for ... they were cute!
ABOVE: I also got a woolen blanket for the dogs, some wool and a bread load cutter guide thingee. I'm sure it will be helpful when cutting fresh loaves.
Sitting here, smelling dinner cooking.... Bex is cooking spag bog I think.
End of Day: dinner was lovely, watched some tv and now am actually going to bed EARLY for a change. If you call 10.20 pm early.
