Letterboxes on the Tutukaka Coast (We are on the East coast of Northland NZ now)- that's seaside living for you...
A tree stump wrapped in colourful leis in a bayside backyard at Church Bay on the Tutukaka Coastline. I noticed that a lot of homes in both the city and the country have similar decks attached to their homes on the lower level which give them additional outdoor living spaces in their backyard. They usually don't have any railings - this one has some bench seats. There is always a huge expanse of steps and it does give the feeling of a more extended living space - this is what I noticed anyway!
I love this image of a solitary abandoned church in the middle of nowhere. I guess at one time it would have been a church that serviced the local farming communities. Hubby jumped the fence to have a look in as he is the eternal explorer and reported back to base commander that it was in a very sad state. Glad I didn't have a look inside as I loved the simplicity of this building from an external view - just how I want to remember it.
Have a lovely weekend.
