Inland beach

Hubby found, yet, another place I haven't been before (he's good like that!). This walk was along the Manganui River. There was a short 10-minute bush walk between two clearings on the water. If you didn't know you were about 30 miles from the ocean, you'd swear it was just around the corner. The white sand will be a great place for a picnic and swim on a hot summer's day.


The pretty yellow bush is called gorse. It's a member of the broom family and consider invasive and, therefore, a weed.



These ducks and juvenile ducklings were upstream but I couldn't get closer.



I'm joining Scenic Sunday

That's quite the scenic and tranquil spot. The sand looks like silk...so soft and fine! Enjoy the week.

I've often noticed how beautiful weeds are. Many of them have sweet flowers on them. The sand looks so inviting!

So lovely and you are right that I would never guess you are 30 minutes from the ocean here.
