MCoW-White-Island

~~~~~

 

In  2018 during our North Island road trip

we visited the Ohope (southern) end of

The Bay of Plenty

Locals told me this was White Island.

In view of recent activity over there I was

just wondering if you could clarify that for me please.

I was only using a 250 mm lens and the island

appears much closer than the 50 km it is

from Whakatane or Optiki Beaches.

Happy New Year to you Betty and thank

you for visiting my site and introducing yours.

I think this image maybe from Whakatane

which was our base when we visited

 Ohope Beach

and Opotiki region.

If I had to guess…

…I would say these were Poppies.

A hundred metres or so along

the road at Ohope Beach…

…and we had to stop again.

They are just called Daisies in our garden. 

I guess there is a botanical name.

They seemed quite happy in

September sun on the dunes of

Ohope Beach,

Bay of Plenty,

New Zealand

Still at Ohope Beach…

Some more pretty, in my opinion, flowers,

which may also be a pretty weed as

these are also growing

apparently wild on the dunes of… 

…Ohope Beach,

Bay of Plenty,

Also from Ohope Beach…

…these beauties were not as profuse as some others. 

However, these may also be a pretty weed as

those in my post a day or two back are.
