The Lemon of Paekakariki

Seventeen yesterdays have gone by since I wrote my last posting. And today I will break that lull with this photo-posting of yesterday, Sunday September 26.

Sunday had been a grey day with drizzle and rain all day. And all day and night the wind was having a hey day. The waves were still raging mad just like the last week or so. This was what I could see from the so-called sun room.

However, it hadn't been too cold to stop me from wandering about 3, Sand Track to take more pictures before we leave for Kuala Lumpur on the 30th.

This is the view from the back of the house.

And this is on the other side of the gate.

Two or more blackbirds had been playing hide and seek in the garden but I just could not catch them on camera. I had to be contented with this series of photographs before my fingers got too cold.

The back garden from the top.

The side view of 3, Sand Track.

From the verandah looking out to the sea.

But this is my favourite. It's the lemon tree...

......and the lemon on the keyboard. That's me!

Good - night all. AsH is back in town.

It's been grey and raining because Paekakariki is missing the girl in the red jacket.

Psst Uncle, that's a nice picture on the computer screen...

Sunyi juga Ayoh Wang rasa dengan ketiadaan N3 Puan.. I thought the title is "Lemon of Harakiri.. pulling your tired legs..ha..ha

Thank you ph,

What girl? What red jacket? Oh you mean that pest with the camera?

anak si-hamid said...


I too wish I could bring back the cold in the bottle.

As for feeling 'recharged" - hhmmm.

Sometimes I wish for KL - the cats and heat and all.

But, mustn't grumble. NZ is a beautiful country and New Zealanders are the luckiest people in the world.

anak si-hamid said...

Aaaahh, Wan Sharif,

How lovely to hear from you. Indeed sometimes the 'lemon' feels like committing harakiri - like findng itself in a lemon layer pudding ha ha!

Also the legs are tired from carrying excess weight while in NZ.

ph said...

Yes i agree that New Zealand is a beautiful country and the people there are so, so lucky.

And yes please bring back some cold in the empty jam bottles but not the wind.

Aishah said...

Selamat hari raya Aidilfitri. (I hope it is not too late).

anak si-hamid said...

Thank you ph,

Why not look through your 16,000 photographs?

anak si-hamid said...

Thank you Aishah, and it's not too late for me to wish you Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri too.

I'm glad you liked the photos. The sea and the clouds are amazing and beautiful, Allah's great gifts to us.

Dear mokjadeandell,

Thank you for popping in. Insyallah one day your dreams will come true.

I never dreamed of being to places I've been but such is life's journeys that the most unexpected good things will come your way.
