Boys and girls and birds

School holiday and the weather is still summery.  Ish.  Yesterday I took two of the grand-daughters to the beach.  The crowds of Easter had gone, just a few people braving the water.  There was a cool breeze coming off the water.

Little boys, dressed to keep them warm, enjoying playing in the sand.  I just loved the determined stride of this little guy.

Sisters, keeping low out of the wind, enjoying a giggle. 

I was trying to get a shot of a seagull in the air but didn't expect as good a result as this.

 Another beach goer walking by, wrapped up against the wind.

Looking south along Ruakaka Beach.  Dark clouds building but they didn't develop into anything much. 


  1. I truly enjoyed your photos Pauline.

  2. A great shot of the seagull. A pity you didn't have a bit of bread to drop on her bum.

  3. Wonderful pictures with beautiful colours! Pure fun to look at! :))
    Love that little guy and, most of all, the seagull in flight. I admire you for that :))
    Have a fine day

    PS: Could you please send me an email - knipsa dot passtscho at gmail dot com? Thank you :)

  4. Looks like all of you had a fine day at the beach. Lovely photos. Especially like the one with the seagull in the air.

  5. Lovely photos! I can't wait until we can return to the beach for days like this!

  6. It was a great day to be on the beach. sometimes we get more in a photo than we realize. I like the clouds you picked up.

  7. beautiful beach images. the gull in the air is a great capture.

  8. A nice beach trip, i'm glad you got to go!

  9. Wonderful photos! Such a beautiful beach.

  10. I could watch the beach for hours and hours just looking at the water and the sky. I visited your part of the world a few years back and can't wait to visit again.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
