Saturday PhotoHunt Themes: Point









I am playing with words this week. I live in Point Chevelier.

Point Chevalier is a suburb and peninsula in the west of the city of Auckland in the north of New Zealand. It is located five kilometres to the west of the city centre on the southern shore of the Waitemata Harbour. It is a Point because it is located at the tip of a triangular peninsula, which extends north into the harbour for 1800 metres. So when you travel on my Road, Point Chevalier Road, you reach the sea, which makes it a good location, so we don't get a lot of traffic.

You live in a beautiful area!
Thanks for your visit! The trees in my header are willows. We have plenty of them! The tree in my sunset photos is a crabapple with lovely blossoms in April and May.
Have a great week Ann!

Hi Ann! Weeping willows are also around. They live also near water like the other willows.

My son visited New Zealand a couple of years age with his girlfriend (now his wife) on their trip around the world a couple of years ago... They much prefered the people of NZ to the Ozzies..

I also have a good friend I met on the internet (and have since met in person) who lives in Sabah Borneo.. The world is becoming such a small place.

Take care.. big hugs from Drew.

Beautiful images today Ann, it's always so interesting to see other parts of the world.
btw glad you got your word verification thing sorted, I laughed when I saw your image for the post...you really did need specs to try and figure it out!

I'm glad you took advantage of this week's theme to tell us about the area where you live. It looks like a wonderful place to live, and your pictures are beautiful.

Very nice post. Since words are your thing, you might be interested in a series of posts I have been doing on the word play involved in cryptic crosswords. The first one is: http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2012/01/cryptic-crosswords-solving-hints-1.html
It has now evolved into a daily series. I find it great fun - much better than ordinary crosswords.
