sunday walking

now that the weather is warming up i decided to go for a walk right along the ridge above eastbourne. the view is fab and i was struck by how beautiful our native kowhai flowers are this year. i also walked past the light house mosaic i made a few years back when i made them day in day out.
it is actually 1.5 meters high and has lasted amazingly well considering it is right on the beach front and gets quite a hammering from sand and salt. i guess that's to be expected, mosaics have lasted thousands of years!

You're so lucky to have such amazing surroundings and what lucky locals to have such a beautiful mosaic to decorate their beach front!
