Some Leaves from the Book of Beach Trees

At Tovarua Plantation Beach there are some wonderful trees lining the water's edge.


Who needs an adventure park when you have a tree like this and 28 degree water to play in?

This old Talus tree died back awhile ago but is now sprouting new leaves.

All you need is a shady secluded spot, a beach chair, a glass of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc………….. and someone to share it with.

I am sorry I haven't been able to visit many of you this week but we had a massive electrical storm here on Sunday night that blew out phone systems, computers, fax machines, power etc. Luckily we missed the worst of it here at Takubar but the phone lines out of here have been horrendous. Hopefully I can visit you all today or tomorrow.

Very beautiful and warm photos! I enjoyed the underground army hospital photos as well.

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog and the comment about swimming attire required in the north.

I feel sorry for all my blogging friends in cold grey places but here it is summer all year round - sigh!!!

I hope these warm photos will cheer you up.

A friend of mine in London printed a beach photo I sent her and pinned it up in the office staffroom where everyone threw darts at it - well it was only 4 degrees outside and drizzling rain at the time!!!!

What magnificent spot! You are right, there is not much one would need on a beach like this :) Are the people on the picture at the top doing a dance? It looks almost like a choreographed moment. Beautiful!

It looks like you live in paradise. What lovely beaches and nature all around.
Hope the power and phone lines get restored soon.

Really amazing photos! You live in a paradise! I prefer the first one, it is sooo perfect!

I like the tree and how it struggles with the sea and survives.

Jilly said...

Oh, sigh again... I agree. Your photographs have to be THE most beautiful. Bliss on a stick.

I love them all but particularly that first one - it's a great image of the tree on the water's edge and the children playing. At least I think they are children.

Hey Jules, I just tested myself on your 4-question quizz at the bottom of your text.
Crikey ! - I got 4 out of 4.
Tonight I shall dreammmmmmmmmm !

Donna said...

Geez, I'm picturing myself in a handmade swing, tied to a branch of that tree....(hang your head back, close your eyes) lovely....

Jules said...

Hi All - as you can see there is plenty of room for all your beach chairs but you'll need the Cloudy bay or something equally nice!!!

isadora - no they were just playing but it does look like a dance doesn't it!!!
