Te Kukuwai O Toa

Te Kukuwai O Toa.

We enjoyed a wander around this re-established wetland in Porirua this afternoon. It is an area that is central to our local Iwi and was very prone to flooding. The plantings will assist in filtering out contaminants which will improve the health of Porirua harbour. Birds of note so far were a pair of sleepy Paradise ducks, and Swallows flying too fast for my eye to catch on camera. I hope Mitre 10 Mega donated towards this project because they are receiving a lot of free advertising.😉


A trip to the other side

The suburb in which I live is located close to the Pauatahanui Inlet. The last weekend of July was warm, sunny and calm and we headed around to the other side of the Inlet to explore a new section of a walkway, Te Ara Piko ( The meandering path). This path allows walkers to view the Inlet in all its moods and some of its wildlife without disturbing the latter.

Here are a couple of photos that I took while out and about on the “other side.”
