There were people everywhere. Dining outside on Ocean Beach Road down by the Mount. And heaps walking around or to the summit of Mauao – Mount Maunganui. More it seems, on a cool winter’s day, than in the height of summer. We concluded there were ‘lots’ on the mountain – a finely realised ‘statistic’ plucked randomly from the air and chucked about until we convinced ourselves of it’s veracity.
There is some resistance to this photo – I love it – another taken at the same time was preferred but I’m the editor and I win. Mother and Son – Marde and Oliver. The boys had walked to the summit and we around the lower track.
