Pictures of the Week 19

A ridge of high pressure has dominated most of the north island this week and with a bit of luck it will remain until late Friday. I’ve been busy with my new job (more about that later) but will be out there on the rocks this Friday morning fishing for a feed and hopefully something big as well. Conditions are promising, variable SW winds and no swell on the east coast.

We’ve been experiencing some great winter weather, lots and lots of sunshine, clear skies and crispy mornings. Strong south-westerlies and the clear night sky yielded cold temperatures though. My thermometer recorded 2 dC yesterday early morning.

I went for two big walks in the back yard this week and have put a few pictures together for you.

A great scenic lookout on the highest point of my land, some 270 m. If you look closely, you'll spot my broken windmill.
