After relentless gales from the northwest we were blessed today with a cool, gentle southerly wind change. That brought us the astounding sound of silence from the noise of the winds, stillness to be outdoors and enjoy it, and warmth from the sunshine.
Jazz made the best of the conditions as he stretched to soak up the prevailing goodness.
When the spring winds died later in the afternoon yesterday we headed to Aotea Lagoon for a walk and to enjoy the surroundings there.
I particularly enjoyed the dappling of the sun on water in the larger of the two duck ponds.
The ducks were dabbling.
This gull was content to allow me to dawdle very close to his/her perch.
And other gulls were dawdling in a group near the main Lagoon.
Sun, late afternoon light, water, nature….what could be better on a late Sunday afternoon in September.
