Another of those photographically flat days just happened.
I took photographs. It would be unthinkable not to, but I did not feel inspired. Mary persuaded me to walk the Hutt riverbank with her so my first shot is from the stopbank near Alicetown looking towards the rail bridge at Moera. The river looks placid here, but by the time we walked down to the estuary and back it was being whipped up by a mean Southerly breeze.
My next image is under the Ewen Bridge. Opened in 1996, this is the seventh bridge at this site. I was interested to learn when the holes were drilled for those pylons, they passed right through the aquifer which supplies a large part of the Hutt Valley’s drinking water. Special measures were required to ensure that the aquifer was uncontaminated in the process.
Later in the day I was at Lyall Bay and liked the “mother and daughter” moment. I have no idea who they are but they were enjoying each other’s company on the beach despite that nasty on-shore breeze.
My last shot was of a sail-boarder battling the waves at Lyall Bay as the Kaitaki passes by on its way to Wellington
That’s all, better luck tomorrow
