I live near the delightfully simple and beautiful Aotea Lagoon. It has some lovely grassy areas, a duck pond, a rose garden, fern house, children’s play area, barbeques to use for picnics, a petanque piste, a windmill and of course the tidal lagoon that you can walk around.
It is a very popular spot for people of ages. It is free and offers so much ordinary pleasure.
Today with spring in full bloom I snapped some photos on a warm and sunny October afternoon. It was easy to feel the gentle energy and soak up the goodness.
Gorgeous photos! It’s nice to see the spring sunshine.
Thanks Jo. The day was perfect. Back to spring gales and heavy showers today:-)
It was special to capture the wisteria and frothy blossoms.
How serene the lagoon looks, and such a contrast to the lively spring flowers. It must have been a wonderful walk.
The water was almost like a mill-pond which makes for a very relaxing feel. As you say the flowers were full of life. The ducks and seagulls were energetic too.
