At the lake

There is a pretty lake in Cambridge. Lucky for us its on the way into town – well almost, I detour a little to walk around it on my way to do the odd shopping excursions. One afternoon I luckily brought my camera because the light down there was stunning and I have not managed to equal the shots since (I have tried).

The name of the park is called Te Koutu Domain.

Starting to count the days until we make it home. I dreamt about it last night… the painters had painted it in all the wrong colours, however the roof looked great!

This little bird came to greet me upon arrival and posed for some photos… fantails are quite prolific here.

Could not resist this shot in the lovely light!

Last but not least – my favourite cafe is in pink hidden behind the trees, great coffee and tea selection, slices are delish and they have a great selection of interesting magazines. Hard to find all of that in the one cafe…

  1. Lovely pics Simone. Cambridge is a nice little town. Must find out where your cafe is so that I can try it when next passing through but a poor runner up to having coffee at 181:>)

  2. Hey, thanks for your comment on my Garden Spells post – I do recommend it as a good escapist read, perfect for forgetting about winter for a while. You mentioned Maria V Snyder and I have read one of her books, I forgot what it was called but now I remember it was Storm Glass. Anyway, Maria V Snyder is being interviewed by Kim Hill tomorrow on National Radio – here is the link to the podcast page:
    I thought it was funny to come across this right after you left the recommendation 🙂
