Beautiful Tauranga Water

We can all remember when we were kids how great it was when you were hot and thirsty to rush to the hose or outside tap and gulp down the water despite the fact that it may have been warm with a plastic taint. 
Not this time....

Out at sunrise downtown Wellington.
These discs are the work of Louise Purvis and called Seismic Shock

Night Signage. Mt Maunganui

 I wonder what people will think about these humble illuminated signs at the Mount in 100 years time should they stumble over old pictures or this era.

Mount Beach Sunday

A messy surf from a week long storm and sea fog made things more interesting than usual this weekend.
Waves exploding on mussel rock.
 Rough surf 
This is a new style I notice quite a few people practising....
 Current takes surfers down the beach and they walk back to the break


Super Moon

One of this years super moons setting over Matua.
Watch out for the extra large moon on the 11th of August
