Red Rocks 31 Dec 2009 - photo heavy

... a BBQ dinner out at Red Rocks, this is taken from the entrance carpark - we are heading out past the point with the small rocks...

Nearly at the small rocks you saw in the first picture - part of the flat road !

This is Hell's Gate - very steep, narrow and rocky - we are half way to our destination...

Some of the kiwi batches along the way...

Finally at our destination, wood gatherer on duty...

Not sure of the name for this now defunct lighthouse - is on quite a lean... though looks pretty straight from this angle.

Sea was too choppy for DH to go for a dive for fresh Paua for tea...

So we made do with the steak we brought from home... this is the little fire!

Time for a cuppa - don't you just love Nescafe instant Mochachino sachets - I got to have a flash coffee to top off a magic dinner!

Setting sun and building up the fire...

Sunset on the horizon...

Time to head home...


Hope you had a lovely New Year's eve.
Hugs

That looks so remote and wonderful. I didn't know where exactly it is( but have looked it up since )and think it looks very like Castle Point which of course isn't far as the crow flies.

All the Best Wishes for 2010.
