Random wandering yesterday lead me to the Hutt River at Te Marua.
It was almost warm, though not enough in my opinion to justify the three young people who went past me into a swimming hole in the river. Shrieks and gasps confirmed my judgement that the water was much colder than it looked.
My attention was distracted by the lively buzzing of honey bees around the flowers of the prolific blackberry bushes nearby. As you may have read in earlier editions, I get excited to see feral honey bees seeming to make a comeback.
I took way more pictures than I could use, but that’s the nature of opportunistic picture making.
That’s enough for today.
