Beautiful Connell's Bay, Waiheke Island, New Zealand

Have taken a bit of a detour for a week, visiting friends on beautiful Waiheke Island, New Zealand.  The first few days have been a bit wet for ‘tramping’ (that’s kiwi for hiking/walking), although we managed a wander around beautiful Whakanewha State Park, with its glorious red-flowered pohutukawa trees and nesting oyster catchers.  But today the rain lifted and we went to the far end of the island, for the privilege of taking the guided walk through Connells Bay Sculpture Park. I can’t recommend this walk highly enough – the commissioned sculptures – all New Zealand artists, sit so well in this stunning landscape, it’s hard to imagine they haven’t always been there.  It’s by appointment only, and well worth the effort of getting here.
