Spending another beautiful afternoon with another walk of 2017 shut down holidays @Keith Hay Park

This beautiful park is one of the most popular attractions @Mount Roskill suburb. In addition, it consists @Children’s playground, another @Playground and @Cameron Pool and Leisure.

You can easily spend a quality hour walking around this park.

Now on to the second walk on the same day as part of 2017 shut down holidays @Opou Reserve

The earlier walk in the day appeared short and so went out for this one. This reserve was even smaller than I thought and so, covered adjoining @French Bay and the beach on the way.

Another day, another afternoon walk – third one of 2017 shut down holidays @Green Bay Beach

A beautiful beach serving as connector between Kevin Lynch walkway and Te Aro O Tiriwa walkway. Yours truly was able to cover both of them!

I am bookmarking these walks with ‘2017 shut down holidays’ because it may not be possible to do such long walks in 2018 once I start working and so was the case with 2017.

Now enjoying the second walk of 2017 shut down holidays @Manukau Costal Walkway

A well maintained walkway for most of the part. Awesome views of sea and beaches. Passes through couple of reserves as well. There was an adventurous crossing over the rocks which made the walk worthwhile.

Loved visiting @Kingswood Reserve, @Aldersgate Reserve and @Grannys Bay

Merry Xmas!

First walk of 2017 shut down holidays @Goodall Street Reserve. This reserve is now renamed to Belfast Reserve.

Most of this reserve was an eye opening experience. It appeared to be a neglected reserve – first ever that I came across in Auckland till now. Seats and benches were covered with algae, walkways were covered with leaves and gravel and there were too many smelly corners.

I hope that it is looked after sooner than later.

The ending was a good one though towards @Taylors Bay and @Taylors Bay Playground – well maintained and beautiful sea views.

Ended the walk @Hillsborough Bay Walkway, a part of @Hillsborough Reserve.
