Parkinson's Walk Monday 17th June

Once again the weather held for our walk - around the coast at Onerahi.  There was a fur seal enjoying itself in the water - very hard to get a photo as it kept diving but the top photo is head and flippers, the next just flippers and the last is the tail.













The Airport is at the top of the hill.  We adjourned there afterwards for a coffee.

  1. Your photos of the fur seal are stunning. And the mountains in the mist are quite otherworldly. If only the walks around me in Wiltshire were quite so
    breathtaking I might be bothered to get up and get out early and enjoy them. Good for you. Cx

    1. I am sure Wiltshire is stunning in its own way.

  2. How cool to see a fur seal, Susan! Lovely photos. My Mum and Dad live out in Onerahi, though not by the coast. I must take a trip out there sometime and do some drawing/painting.

  3. Love the photos. That yellow creeper along the fence is spectacular! What is the plant, Susan?

    1. The creeper is a Pyrostegia (or flame vine)
