On holiday

I'm in Whakatane for a couple of weeks, taking a break and visiting the family. Today was a lovely sunny winter's day, so we went for a drive over the Ohope hill to get fish & chips at our favourite spot, the Ohiwa Oyster Farm.

There were fewer humans there at this time of year, but just as many birds! The usual scrum of seagulls, plus a few kingfishers and even a weka nosing about in the mud.

On the way back we spied a couple of lambs eating grass and wiggling their little tails. So cute!
