Every so often I like to find a different places from which to look down on our city and suburbs.
The weather was not kind for this activity, but I tried anyway. My start point was at the Southern end of Korokoro on the Western hills. The problem with many of these vantage points is that there are few windows through which a clear view can be had. As you can see on my first image looking down on the road beside the harbour, I am struggling to see through the trees.
A little further along, there was a clear view down on Petone. Much of the nearer parts of the suburb were industrial forty years ago, but the whole area is subject to creeping gentrification.
From the same spot, there is a view across the regrettably dull harbour to Eastbourne, and I decided to use this image today for a new-found friend in Old Chelsea, Quebec who has a connection with Eastbourne.
Around the ridges to the top of Normandale Road, my journey took me to a place where there was a nice view down on Lower Hutt’s CBD.
That’s all on this dull day.
