From my bedroom window - well almost
Whilst many are suffering severe winter weather in the northern hemisphere, here in New Zealand we are having long, dry spells this summer and some parts of the country are on the verge of being declared drought zones.
The summer holidays are drawing to a close for many.
This past weekend we observed this happy gathering of holiday makers on the river bank below.
They seemed to have small craft of every style and description, including car tyres and were making the most of the summery weather to venture off down the river together.
There has been activity down below most days. Swimming, kayaking, fishing and all to be seen from my bedroom window - well almost.
