A stroll on the beach
On a recent crisp autumn afternoon my GKB and I decided to head down to Taieri Mouth just to have a look. We haven't been down for about 15 years, since friends of ours had their caravan parked there at the camping ground. Not much has changed, it's a fishing community with a few cribs (bach, holiday home) thrown into the mix. We took a stroll along the beach and these are a few of the photo's we took. Enjoy.

'Moturata Island is a very fragile Sooty Shearwater and Little Blue penguin breeding area. Walking on the island can cause damage to their burrows. Your co-operation by not venturing onto the island will help towards preservation of these species'

I hope you enjoyed a short stroll along the beach with us in the autumn sun.
Have a good week,
