It gives me special pleasure when a reader makes personal contact. Yesterday, Pamela from Geneva called and we had coffee at La Bella Italia in Petone. Pamela has been reading WYSIWYG news since the early ’90s long before it acquired its present form as a photo blog. It was a very great pleasure to meet you after all these years, Pamela and thanks for the coffee. From there I didn’t go far. The morning had started off drizzly, and the clouds were still lingering on the Eastern hills.
Next, I got down low at the waterline and looked though the set of old piles, the purpose of which remains a mystery. I suspect that at some stage they might have been the support structure for a storm-water drain or similar, but no visible trace remains apart from the piles.
At the Western end of the beach there is a walkway that passes under the Petone overbridge and beside the railway line. As is often the case, large expanses of blank wall encourages the weak-minded to leave their marks. Though I hate all forms of graffiti, I had to acknowledge that this particular vandal had a good sense of colour.
My last shot was at the other end of the beach where a group of starlings were feeding together on whatever it was that inhabited all that weed left behind by the receding tide.
That’s all for now as I have an early start tomorrow.
