Wide open places with lots to see, go wide angle with your shots.

I am very lucky, there are more than 100 beaches within an hours' drive from central Auckland. This Owairaka park is just minutes away, and there is a walking track, and people fish, and launch their boats. Oysters grow fat and juicy. The only draw back is just across the channel is the Mangere sewage treatment plant. This is why the oysters grow big because nobody wants to harvest them.

Very envious. Been a while since we were last at a beach. My hubby promised to take us to Cha-am (2 hours' drive) this coming long weekend...

The view from there is breathtaking!
Re;your comment: that shot was taken at Danga Bay , Johore not in Singapore.It's a permanent fixture there. Kids seem to love it, but not me.

if the oyster are big due to the sewage plant nearby ,then i think it should be alright to consume them.if nearby is some kind of factory and the oysters nearby are biggies...,then i won't dare to eat them.what do you think,Ann?

Lovely series Ann.

I served a one year tour (USAF) at Than Son Nhut AB Ann. Yes I was there from Jan 1966 until Jan 1967.
