A week later, we took on the Te Henga walkway ( #tehengawalkway) from the opposite side. That was such a view to live for. In the times of confusion I asked God what I should be hoping for. He told me (or say biblically speaking I shall put my hope in the Lord), but it was still hard for me to understand. At the time, I asked repeatedly out of desperation, right there he told me to have peace, the next thing came to me was "hope in Jesus, for through him and for him all things are created, find Jesus and his love in all creations, cherish it and always come back to it. Live for him and hope in him." Finally, I'll leave this with a Bible verse Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."

Woah look it's Mel in her natural habitat 😮😜😂 (looking puffy from the flipping cold wind that was blowing a gale on this morning 😂)
As much as I love a pastel sunrise, there is no place I’d rather be than where I am right now - sitting in pjs, sipping coffee and watching rain fall outside my window. I’ve spent the past week and half with some of my favorite people - getting outdoors and focusing my energy on being present. It’s been amazing, rejuvenating and hugely inspiring. As for now, in this moment - I’m reminded of just how much I love cozy, rainy days and no plans ☺️🌧

Looking out as the clouds roll in over Lake Hawea from SH6.
Can't wait to be in this part of the world again at the end of next week, very excited for a road trip!
Taking the Pith
This morning’s lovely subtle sunrise looking across the Tairua Harbour towards Mt Paku, a quaint volcanic peak caused by an eruption about 6,500 years ago. The shape of this local icon is reminiscent of the famous pith helmets worn by British forces in warm climates.
If you’re ever in Tairua make sure you do the walk to the top for stunning views up the harbour and over the offshore islands out to sea.
Earning My Stripes
This idiom has military origins and essentially it’s about having to work hard to achieve results. Although I don’t see photography as hard work, getting up at 4.30am every day while on holiday definitely isn’t easy.
When I do the hard yards and then witness a sunrise as beautiful as this I feel like I’ve earned it. It just so happens that this particular sunrise came with actual stripes.
