While I lived in Dunedin, I loved driving out to the peninsula. In less than five minutes, I was back in the country life with the added joy of an ocean breeze.
Here are some photos from a trip to the Peninsula in May.
This last shot was taken the day before I left Dunedin. It’s called Sandfly Bay, and as I wrote on Instagram when I posted a March photo of Sandfly Bay, “For me, this place ranks up there with Milford Sound, Kaikoura, MacKenzie Country, and Stewart Island. It’s a place of contrasts: loud and quiet, vast and closed in, sky and land, domestication and wilderness, bounded and boundless, comfort and edge all at the same time. A place where the spirit can just…be.”
