Skywatch Friday: Onehunga Boardwalk
New Zealand is very fortunate to have lots of trees and good brains to reforest when we cut them down.
Where once, it was impossible to go because of swamps and mud, there are now boardwalks. You don't need gum boots or get muddy feet to enjoy some of our beaches.
This one at Onehunga is a very wide one, wide enough even for cars to go on, (of course, it is not for cars.) People walk and cycle on the boardwalk, and look on to the Mangere bridge. The vegetation is mangrove, and when I went last month, the mangrove were blooming. There were a lot of other flowers too.
The sky was a beautiful clear blue with some clouds. It was also a very cold afternoon.
