Christmas Day walk

Our house swap home* is right next to the estuary and Fergusson Park. Today lots of people were out enjoying family barbecues… or for a cycle ride… or for a dip in the water or just for a stroll like us. The pohutakawa trees (nicknamed North Island Christmas trees) were in full bloom. Oystercatchers were amongst the many birds we spotted along the shore line.
