Stillness is a rare quality.
I find this is to be true both in terms of te person, and the climate. Stillness in the climate tends to get me moving in person. If there is no wind, and even better, a bit of sunlight and some nice puffs of cumulus, I am up and away. Yesterday I went along Gray’s Road to the point where the road leaves the harbour, and where the Cambourne Walkway begins. No vehicles, motorbikes or dogs off their leashes. But, as a I expected no wind either. The view to the West was a delight.
Usually, I could tell when there was someone else on the walkway because their dogs bounded along ahead of them. I did my best not to scowl at them (the owners, I mean, I like dogs). A spot on the water’s edge afforded a different view across the water.
Past the well known boatsheds on the Northern shore, I paused to look back Eastward at the bohemian splash of random colours.
Further on, I came to the outlet where the Pauatahanui arm passes under the road and rail bridges at Paremata and looked across to the Southern set of sheds. All very peaceful. A yacht sailed into view and because I had the camera set for a slow exposure, decided to see what would result. Did I mention the dogs? I met about fifteen people with dogs, of whom just one person had a pair on a lead.
That’s all for now.
