My day would not be the same without a walk somewhere, sometimes nowhere in particular.  It can be just a matter of opening the door and seeing which way I turn, left or right, will indicate what will be included in my walk.  Sometimes even a mode of transport is needed to take me further… Continue reading The Papamoa Hills
