on the other side of the fence. I don't think these three agree. Having successfully escaped to the other side, all they wanted to do was get back.
In three more sleeps I'll leave winter behind and head off to see if the grass is greener in the northern hemisphere. I'll see if the locals I meet are as accepting of differences as my neighbours are.
I had time to fill late one afternoon during the week and stopped to take a photo of a church I've never photographed before. Probably because I don't pass that way very often. It's beside the Pehiaweri Marae beside the road to Ngunguru. It looks to be recently painted.
The next day I had time for a few shots of the Whangarei Harbour. I'm glad I enjoyed those few minutes of tranquility as shortly after the doctor was jabbing a needle that looked like it was intended for a horse into the bottom of my heal with the promise it would help me walk in foreign lands without limping.
As I've been writing this I've had a visitor. She could have been sent to remind me to count my blessings, she has lost the lower part of a leg. Heather found her while out horse riding when she was very young and brought her home to feed her and treat the wounded leg. I thought her chances of survival were slim but here she is today, quite healthy and managing very well. Well enough to sneak into my garden!
I probably won't post again before I leave and don't expect to much while I'm away. I simply don't have the patience for entering text on the tablet. I will visit other blogs if I can.
See you on the other side.
