A walk and a half...

Today my friend and I were dropping our sons at a birthday party so then we went for a walk together. But her walk wasn't just a stroll along the beach road. We did the whole Eastern Suburbs walkway. OMG... http://www.feelinggreat.co.nz/facilities-and-venues/walkways-and-tracks/184-explore-wellington-eastern-walkway

We went right around Breaker Bay (here's the webcam but I can't see anything because it's pitch black out there just now, in the dark!!! http://www.diveski.co.nz/Diving/WaterCams/BreakerBay/tabid/154/Default.aspx)
(it's a rugged south-facing Cook Strait coastal bay of houses all on one side of the road below towering vertical unclimbable bush clad hills with the sea coming right up to the other side of the road - I love peeping in all the front windows right by the road) then we went up up up straight up to the Attaturk Memorial then up and up and over and down and up and over and down through bush and along ridges back to the other side to the Pass of Branda again. It took us an hour and a half of non stop hiking! And she talked the whole way! And answered her phone. I just kept up *g* It was fantastic though. Because there was only a light northerly, the views were magnificent. It was warm and calm and blue seas all around as we (barely) paused on each rise. We really are very fortunate to have such unbelievable tracks through bush so close to home and to the sea. Wish I'd taken the camera, but it probably wouldn't have captured the huge 360 degree vista of sea all round (we live on a peninsula, after all).

But wow, it really was beautiful. What a wondrous creation.
