Not far from my home on the West Coast of the North Island, New Zealand, there is more wild coastline.
Views from above this coastline can be gained from Whitireia Park, a reserve area which some years ago was farmed.
Standing on the high cliffs in the park there is almost always a wind blowing across this exposed site. It is bracing and exhilarating.
This high vantage point offers great views of Mana Island, a wildlife sanctuary.
The rocks are rugged and treacherous here as the Tasman Sea washes into the Porirua harbour entrance.
People use this stretch of coast and this park for all manner of recreational pursuits, both in the sea and on the land.
My visit was to record more of the beautiful landscapes that are found in the area in which I am fortunate enough to live.
How beautiful! I can see why you love going here. This reminds me of parts of Skye, which has a wild coastline with hardly any trees.
The strength of the wind up on the cliffs can be tricky. Yesterday it was just a good strong breeze. Like Skye there are few trees on this reserve.
The other side of the island its wild and woolly today, pounding sea, howling winds and icy rain.. longing for spring !!!
We had a vicious storm overnight here too Valerie. Very little of our lovely country has been spared from extremes this winter. Keep warm and dry!
