The second half of life..

By twigs


Sometimes you just have to do what your heart tells you, despite your head telling you something different.  And so it was today.
I began, as planned, with a visit back to the Hawksbury lagoon where I had hoped to capture some swifts that I'd 'played with' yesterday.  It was going to be a half-hour stop then on the road and heading north.  It wasn't long before I glanced Mr Kotuku further along the lagoon however and so began a day of stalking.  In between Mr K I also had some fun with the Stilt chicks (whose parents must be the noisiest neighbours on the lagoon), Canada Geese (including a hitch-hiker) and some Damselflies.  Late lunch in the van was followed by a lengthy snooze before taking some time to consider where I might stay tonight.  The local golf course won that internal debate and it turned out to be a very good choice.  It's an NZMCA sanctioned parking spot so perfectly safe, and once the last couple of golfers had packed up and headed home for tea, I had the whole place to myself.  So peaceful :)  What a great day!
