This morning I ended up with time to kill in Porirua. I had to pick up a Trade-Me purchase before 8:30am but the shop I also wanted to visit didn’t open till 9:00am. So i decided to take the camera and see what I could capture. Unfortunately the light was not that great.

First stop was the boat sheds at the entrance of the inlet. People are not supposed to live in them but some look pretty set up with full plumbing and even vegetables growing.

I then made my way to the seaward side of State Highway one and down the marina and Ngatitoa park.
