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,


  1. It does look lovely, Diana. Such a vast horizon. X

  2. What a lovely afternoon outing Diana. The sand looks fine and lovely and the township across the estuary looks so English!
    It must have been lovely to visit after so many years.
    Enjoy the new week!

  3. Oh, what a beautiful and lovely little afternoon trip with serene view♡♡♡
    I haven't seen the beach years (^^;) Yes, I enjoyed a short stroll along the beach with you very much.

    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  4. What fun this was to stroll along with you. Here on the Plains of West Texas, we are in the worst drought of all time and your water has me drooling. We are being covered up with blowing sandstorms.

  5. I love an Autumn walk along a beach and this was so lovely of you to share. Have a wonderful weekend xx
