Hawkes Bay Big Sky

Sometimes you come to a place and you feel that the sky is so big.  This is the feel I get from Hawkes Bay compared with some other places in New Zealand.

This foto illustrates what I mean.  There is no clutter around.  The ground is flat.  The clouds are not close to the ground,  they fly high in the sky.

The last foto was to the East.  This one is to the North.  The mountains are covered by clouds.  The clouds are wind tossed and high. ....  Big Sky!!

Looking due West,  [apart from my car] you can see cumulus clouds accumulating, but they can't accumulate too far as the gusty westerly blows them down again.

Over the City of Napier a dark cloud of higher rates and greater debt.......  just joking...  but it is a spectacular cloud none the less.

The sea, on the eastern side of our beachside viewpoint, is flattened by the wind.  This is an oceanside beach.... and the waves are 10cm high.

The driftwood, mostly willow, is attacked by worms in the sea.  They are quite big worms as they make quite big holes.

What a perfect place for an outdoor fire.  Stones underneath.  They are fireproof.  Sea  only 100metres way.  It is a fire killer.  All around  .... piles of driftwood..  that is fuel.   A beautiful view of the sea, and the sea can provide food to eat.  Perfick!!! [perfect]

This is not a milk bottle.  It probably contained rum or whisky.  Even empty it has some beauty, as the glass captures the sunlight and colours it and reflects it.

With such large piles of driftwood, I am puzzled about the ban on fires on the beach!  It might be just seasonal, but a ban exists.

At least this waste is not plastic.  Evidence of a meal consumed on the beach?

Two  Kahawai caught from the beach and made into a meal.  Bones left to be ground into sand.  Eventually.

A flower peaks jauntily from its bed of ....  gravel.  It is a very clever plant to do that.  Maybe we should feed cows on succulents and not grass.  We would save applying all that superfosfate.  !!!!

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.

I could feel the same experimental experience while reading. The author could write within a short and cute sentence. In my opinion most of youth and teenagers wasting their time on useless chatting and browsing videos. You have to write to support the digital world.
