I recently came across this fabulous photo journal of my home town San Pedro, CA. It inspired me to take my camera along with me on a walk through Stanley Point, the small point north of Auckland, where we live. Stanley Point is pretty small. There is only one way in and then several short side roads that all end on ocean cliffs.
Here we are starting out in our back yard.
btw...this is the car we bought to match Maya's hair.
We live down a long drive way behind a beautiful old restored villa...
on a nice quite dead end street. At the end of the street we recently discovered a staircase leading down the cliff to a quite bay.
Our neighborhood has lots of beautiful homes and two apartment buildings.
This is the view from the end of Stanley Point, looking south. It shows just how close we are to the city.
From this spot up on the cliffs you can turn around, look north and see a small bay located on the other side of Stanley Point.
Walk to the end of this street, follow the path down to the water.
We have since found yet another pathway down to the water just a block away from our house.
