Travel Theme: Inspiration from Hastings and Napier

Hastings-

Good morning from a cooler late spring day here in Hastings.

So above is a rather boring photo of Hastings.  On Friday my Social Snappers group went up Te Mata Peak for some photos of the Redwood Forest – we didn’t quite make it but found this little spot.  The only thing was, I forget that I get severe vertigo and some of the trails were steep and so were touch and go for me.  But anyway here is a view of my home town Hastings.

So looking up at the trees was rather dodgy at times.

But looking down was a breeze most of the time.

Then there is Napier – you can see how close Napier is to Hastings.

Here is a close up of the beach at Westshore.

Yesterday I had to help my father at the Bayview market where he sells his wooden toys that he makes.

I took my camera with me as I always do.  All day long I had itchy fingers and just had to walk around taking photos.  I just love this shell flowers – all real shells that have been painted.

There were a lof Art Deco inspired stands such as this one selling these gorgeous mirrors.

I get inspiration from all around me.  There is always something that catches my eye.  So today I thought I would show you some of my home for the Where’s My Backpack?: Inspiration challenge by Ailsa.
