While walking at the Bridge Marina I noticed a Shag fishing underwater. He was busy poking under rocks and must have upset a resident Octopus that came out and puffed itself up (as they do defensively) The Shag was totally unimpressed and just kept on with his mission.

I took this photo over a month ago without thinking or knowing and it was not until I was looking back over my files that I realised that this is the mum of the little boy Jack who was lost to a rogue wave from a rocky and shelly beach at the Mount earlier this year.
I would not have put this up but tonight when we walked around the Mount (Mauao) base track and looked at the large Pohutukawa tree where the family and public have left pictures, toys and shell strings in memory. I made the decision. The little red flag has Jack written on it.
