Some days you’re the seagull, some days you’re the post.
Well, I assume the principle applies here as well as to pigeons and statues. Greyness characterised the day. However, I often enjoy subtle shades of grey. Petone Beach was my improbable location. Behind me, to the north the sky was dark and rain was falling. Southward, to the city, there were remnants of sunlight that came and went as the clouds sailed across the landscape.
Even as I watched, the sky darkened, which was ominous as I knew I had to go to a 70th birthday celebration in the city in the early evening, and true to form we experienced heavy rain and a brief spell of thunder.
But that was later. In the here and now I was able to look across the harbour and enjoy the view.
I am going to have scramble this weekend with some competition deadlines looming. See you tomorrow.
