Path to the sea
This was taken at the mouth of the estuary at Waldronville, a small seaside suburb just south of Dunedin. Waldronville is known for it's quirky street names, they are nearly all named after aircraft so you have a Friendship Drive, Vulcan Road, and a Vampire Road for example.
The beach is a long flat one and we walked north towards the rocky point that's Blackhead accompanied by the noise of gunfire!! The Dunedin pistol and smallbore rifle club is just over the dunes and it sounded like there was a running battle going on. The beach here is not suitable for swimming as there is a wastewater outfall but further north at the Blackhead end of the beach is popular with surfers.
