The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘Old Fashioned’…there photos were taken at Purakanui. on the Otago Peninsula between Waitati and Port Chalmers, just north of Dunedin…it’s a lovely little settlement at the end of a winding no-exit road. We stayed in the cottage in the ‘from’ picture for a couple of nights. The channel runs right by the veranda and it has an external bathroom – at night one has to counts one’s steps very carefully lest one step once too many and goes for a swim! In the morning you can wake up and see the tide racing in or out through the channel and get the impression that the cottage itself is moving – very cool!!
Edit: Oh, yes…there were enough cockles there for a bowl of soup each…
Later on that day we saw restauranteurs from the city come out and hoover up dozens of cockles for commercial use – the limit per person per day is only about forty – this abuse should be banned!!
so wonderful. that wooden house at the riverside …
