A friend lived her early years in Collingwood so yesterday afternoon when it had cooled down a little, I went wandering to take some photos for her.
This is the view from my campsite right near the waterfront. I was sitting in the deckchair hiding in the shade when I took this.
Pohutukawa tree flowering in the campground.
I am always a bit of a woodpile freak, and spied this one not far from the camping ground.
I learned today that there have been several serious fires in Collingwood that destroyed many of the old buildings, but several remain.
And a chance to paddle my feet before bedtime!
