These are some of the photos that I took with my pentax when I was home in Dunedin over Christmas.
I had never been to my parents’ new place at Waikouaiti before, but it feels so much like home that I may as well have spent much of my life there. It is so much like our old bach near Reefton, on the West Coast – except with an awesome permaculture garden.
I didn’t realise how lovely it would be to be so close to cliffs and the sea. I love that there is a whole new place for me to discover in microcosm detail, until I know all the trees and all the roads… all the little special places and how to get to them. There is an entire stretch of coast just waiting for me to go back and explore it.
I miss how peaceful and grounding that place is already.
