Rangitoto Dreaming

Posted on | January 13, 2013 | 12 Comments |

New Zealand is full of stunning views – beautiful native bush; amazing mountains; incredible oceans. It’s great for our movie industry – but it’s even better for those of us living here amongst it every day. For all of that, it’s easy to take it for granted.

In Auckland, we have the Hauraki Gulf in our back yard, and I decided to give Hylas a surprise treat for his birthday last Sunday. I booked us on a harbour cruise, which would take us out into the gulf, stop briefly on Rangitoto Island (one of the many volcanos in Auckland, but certainly the most recently active), and cruise back under the Harbour Bridge.

He has his new camera with him, and I was hopeful that we might just possibly grab a scavenger hunt picture or two …

As it turned out, I’d booked even better than I knew – Hylas, despite living in Auckland for many years, had never set foot on Rangitoto Island! (Yes, I was appalled to hear this. I first visited when I was nine, and most recently when I was a teenager.) While our ship was only pausing for about ten minutes, we made the most of it, immediately disembarking and walking around the coastline past the few baches still remaining.

We were not the only ones having a look around, and there were many other people on the island as well. So when we saw a trail wandering up into the bush, we promptly took it…

Just out of sight of the coastline, the baches, and the tourists, we grabbed some photos. And then it was time to scurry back to the ship before we headed off back into the smooth waters of the Waitemata. But we will definitely be back, for a proper look-around, a climb to the top – and an opportunity to knock off some geocaches in the process, perhaps.

    I LOVE you red dress and I love the image of you walking away from the camera up the path, it just feels like you want ‘us’ to follow you!

    Such a gorgeous backdrop to these sexy images! I love the one with you being extra saucy showing your boobies and tongue 😉

    Beautiful shots. I’m feeling a tad envious of where you live too.

    That dress looks wonderful on you. It’s your color! :) The water is beautiful. There isn’t water like that in Ohio.

    Molly – Hylas gets the best shots (although possibly he was just focused on my arse …)

    MissJuly – No need to be jealous, I promise! Just buy those lotto tickets, and then come live here too :)

    Kazi – I purely can’t help myself!

    Inferno – And to me it’s just … home.

    Beck – We’re surrounded by water here, as Auckland is on an isthmus (I can drive to either coast in very little time).

    Rebel – The contrast is quite something, isn’t it? I wasn’t even thinking of that when I put it on that morning – I just wanted to wear something that wasn’t too heavy, as it was hot that day!

    ThatPosition – I think my cheeks that day were expressing a) heat, b) walking and c) fun :)

    Mia – I adore that dress. Can you believe, though, that it came – in my size – with pads in the boob area? Hylas kindly removed them for me and resewed it with his awesome sewing skills. Because it looked awful with the pads (and I bought it with the intention of getting rid of them).

    Penny – *beams* So all in all, you like the pics?

    I’ve seen a few of your pics but until now couldn’t comment as I was using a iPod so yay new computer. That dress is gorgeous and you get so many amazing scavenger hunt photos. Are you fearless?!

    Bunny – I’m fairly fearless, at least about this! Not totally though, or rather I take reasonable precautions not to get caught at it :)
