A sunny sunlit afternoon

Bright sunshine and blue skies have been very absent around here for some time now. This weekend the sun has shone on us and has been very welcome.
With the back garden full of mid afternoon sunshine I pottered out with my camera and found these images appealed to me as I wandered.
The light was playing in some interesting spots and with little wind it made for a very pleasant time outdoors.








Dinner at Paekakariki

When the film can split its contents all over the floor at the movie theatre there was no point sitting waiting for the technicians to rectify that disaster. We were not meant to see Les Miserables as we had planned.

A regroup was needed. It was getting closer to dinner time and the evening was sunny and pleasant so we headed up State Highway 1 to Paekakariki to the Fisherman’s Table restaurant. They provide simple fare but their fish is always fresh and pan fried beautifully.

While I was waiting for my main course to arrive I stepped outdoors and took these photos looking out to Kapiti Island (a wonderful wildlife and bird sanctuary) and further north up this lovely coast line.
