Pohutukawa needles on the sand
There is a stream/creek at Waiake Beach in Torbay that runs out to sea. This creek happens to not be as deep as its name suggests. I used to kayak down it with the scout group 'Awatuna'. Waiake always reminds me of my friend Kareen who used to live just up from the beach :)
Anyway, while on the bank taking photos of a mammoth sized Pohutukawa I noticed the flowers of the Pohutukawa were already falling, leaving a red carpet on the sand.
This shot is looking towards the bridge that has the walkway alongside the creek.
