Picton Foreshore

This is my latest posting for the My World meme . It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar,Sandy, Wren, Louise and fishing guy. Here is part of 'My World'. http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/



Welcome to my world, Picton New Zealand.
This is the Foreshore of Picton, a place where people gather to sit in the sunshine and wander along the beach and the grassy areas, enjoying the view of the sea and all the action on the water. Children love to feed the ducks and seagulls and the birds certainly enjoy being fed all the bread scraps.
Even in the winter it is pleasant on the Foreshore, but now in the hieght of Summer it is just lovely. We often walk here and relax with the tourists.



One part of the Foreshore has a lovely scented garden, where every flower and plant has a lovely perfume or aroma, it has been specially created for the blind folk so they can sit and enjoy the fragrance, I also enjoy sitting here!

The boat Marina is just around here, under the coat hanger bridge.


Children's play area over in this corner, plus there is a paddling pool for youngsters that are too young to swim in the sea.

How lovely! I would enjoy the scented garden very much! I keep forgetting the seasons are opposite to ours on the other side of the world!

Clara said...

How beautiful your world is! I would find those pictures very attractive at any time of year, but right now I'm looking out my window at several inches of snow on the ground and more falling. I'd love to sit in that fragrant garden with you. Thanks for sharing.

We have lots of lovely beaches but I would dearly love to explore the scented garden for the blind. In art school we made toutch paintings where you could visualize the picture by exploring the different textures with your fingertips.
