Beach fences

One Tree Point sits on Marsden Bay at the south head of Whangarei Harbour. 

When I was there mid morning earlier in the week there wasn't a soul to be seen at the boat launching ramp.  To the right of the ramp there are two fences that run from the grassy banks at the front of private properties down into the water, making them private beaches.  That's Marsden Point Oil Refinery you can see in the background on the right.


At the approach to the boat ramp there's a little grassed area with a couple of seats under huge old trees.  A couple of little fences (maybe they are more handrails than fences), help you find your way down on to the beach. 



The view from under the trees.


I enjoy taking part in Good Fences each week and visiting as many of the other contributors as time allows.

  5. Pauline, great photos as usual. This morning during my meditation, an image of cement stairs came into mind. As I'm reading your blog posts, the exact set of stairs that I saw in my mind is in your photo. :)
