The boys (all 3 of them) were thrilled too. Not necessarily because I was being spoilt rotten, but more because something (anything!) had coerced their sleepy mother outta bed so that we could all go for our early morning walk around the neighbourhood! Anyway, I thought I'd share some early morning photos from around these parts with you....
Many of the residences in this area have pavement frontage, as befits the era they were established. And hence the grilles over the windows. I think I would have to relocate the main bedroom to the back if we ever had to live in a place with such intrusive public frontage...or quickly develop some exhibitionistic tendencies!
We enjoy going walking whilst the morning is still quiet and peaceful and the morning's business bustle has not yet begun. This was the frontage of the Organic Butcher's - roller doors painted with "shop stock" and using traditional Maori colours and patterns. Very cool. It is quite a different scene once the roller doors are up and the shop is ready for business!
I'll continue with more photos from our walkabouts another time.
