A Stroll Round My Neighbourhood


Yes, I know, I know....I am meant to be tidying my wardrobe  but its mid-winter and the weather has been glorious so how could I resist taking a long leisurely walk in the sun yesterday.  Today, however, is a different story with heavy rain and wind but that's New Zealand, four seasons in one week!  Anyway  here are some photos I took yesterday around my neighbourhood, all within a 100 metres of my home.

Churchill Park, right opposite my home, is a 100 acre working farm  within 15 minutes of the city centre.

View of the Tamaki River from the park. My home is behind the trees


Sacred Heart College, boys school, on the top of the hill, overlooking the park




Peace, tranquillity and afternoon shadows in Churchill Park
