This is such a small city that you need not go far to find yourself in the country.
My choice yesterday was the coast road through Wainuiomata, just ten minutes from home. The sun was still shining though there was a stiff wind. A bunch of kids (of the goat kind) were enjoying themselves, but this one’s asymmetric ears appealed to me.
Near the coast, speaking of eccentricity, there is a farm that looks almost as chaotic as my office. Most of you are probably too young to recall a series of movies about Ma and Pa Kettle but for some reason my thoughts wandered back to Saturday afternoon movies when admission was 9d (less than 10 cents). Perhaps the Beverley Hillbillies is a nearer comparison. The immensity of the pig in this shot was what attracted me to the scene.
The coast was uninteresting on this occasion, so I came back and saw these lambs engaged in very vigorous play .
Nothing serious though since they seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
My last shot is to celebrate the fact that yesterday was the vernal equinox and by now it is truly spring here. Nothing says spring quite like lambs and daffodils, so here are the daffodils.
That’s it for today.
