So, what does one do on the day after a night of reckless over indulgence on cake and cookies and chocolate, in my night kitchen?
Why , one ventures outdoors, of course, because Mother (Nature, that is) knows best how to return equilibrium to body and soul. So, that is what we did on this beautiful spring day. We sat by the water side, at Northwood, and watched the world and its wonders. We were in good company.
There were ducks, both on and off the water.
And there was a family of ducks, with Mother and Father Duck being kept very busy with the activity of their one, little, early bird duckling.
Up on the rise, a pair of ducks was resting and, perhaps, contemplating, as they watched the dizzy whizzing of the ducks below, if they were ready for parenthood.
By the water’s edge, we saw two, sweetly serene seagulls, blissfully unaware of the raucous behaviour coming from the other seagulls perched on nearby rooftops.
And, then ,there was the lone Pukeko who came close enough to greet us but decided that searching for food was a much more profitable way to spend the day. And, would we mind our own business, please!
Lastly, before leaving for home, we communed with pretty things, particularly pretty, spring things.
