On the water front by Juliet Batten | 29, Jan, 2012 | Uncategorized | 8 comments Auckland’s water front on a fine day is sparkly and refreshing. Some come to walk or play on the beach and once you’ve got your sun hat on, you can take your timewhile others simply sit, and enjoy gazing at the restful slopes of Rangitoto. 8 Comments Lynley on 30/01/2012 at 08:00 These photos show the ease of a lovely summer’s day.Happy anniversary Day to Auckland. Reply juliet on 30/01/2012 at 21:44 Thank you Lynley. The whole city was quiet for Anniversary Day and it felt peaceful. Reply lifeonthecutoff on 31/01/2012 at 04:27 This looks like an absolutely lovely spot, Juliet, and you have captured it so beautifully in your words and photos. I would want to sit and dream on those benches all day. Reply juliet on 31/01/2012 at 05:17 Yes Penny, it is a beautiful spot. It’s where I travel to see my dentist, and I too had a little flare-up this week (not too serious, thankfully). Having a dentist by the beach really does help to soothe the pain. I’m glad yours is getting better. Reply lifeonthecutoff on 01/02/2012 at 01:38 Sorry to hear that you have needed to see the dentist, Juliet. I’ve been joking that I seem to falling apart piece by piece these days. I must admit that I might have gotten in to see the dentist if his office was near the beach. All he has is a florescent light fixture of a photo of clouds. Oh well . . . hope your flare -up was easily remedied. Reply juliet on 01/02/2012 at 04:42 A photo of clouds! – ah well, I guess that’s better than a ceiling to look at. My fare up has now flared down, thank you. Reply Anne Dean Ruffell on 01/02/2012 at 17:47 Hi JulietI just love this view of Rangitoto and return to it every time we are in Auckland as it is such a peaceful place. I love looking at the shells on the water’s edge too – lots of fan shells with their pretty pink colours. Soon I’ll be doing that again! I can almost feel the sunshine – it is bitterly cold here and I’m hoping there won’t be any snow! Reply juliet on 03/02/2012 at 07:27 Anne, what a nice surprise. Soon you’ll be looking at Rangitoto for yourself. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
