I was a Sunny day

So we went for a long walk around the Omokoroa Peninsula, but this time seeing the tide was out we could walk around the bottom of the cliffs.

It made for an interesting but a little muddy walk, so here are a few photos.

The cliff face has different layers, so at one stage I would guess volcanic activity has raised this area and with sea erosion different shapes and features are visible. Also there seem to be coal seams (from petrified trees) and a large circular one is quite visible.

On the point is a little island (I call bus island) which is home to the local cormorant population.

With the tide out the sea grass is visible and make the tidal mudflats quite different.

No sun today, it has started to drizzle so we are stuck inside again ..

Till next time take care and thanks for looking

Wow! A beauty of a day up there too! We had grand weather here in Paraparam. I'm anxious for spring to arrive! The SI is beckoning me! :)
