Scoping the runway

We do a fair bit of plane spotting whenever we feel like going for a drive out to the airport. The main area for plane spotters looks straight onto the runway and gets very busy. Wouldn't it be great if there was another vantage point that one can have a side view of the runway? That's the question Jef asked himself as he looked at Google Maps of the surrounding area, and he found a reserve on the other side of the harbour. So yesterday we decided to take a drive out to Puhinui Reserve, Manurewa.

We walked down the long and windy road in the lovely sunshine and tall grass.

We crossed over to the farmland where cows grazed.

The cows started to run toward us, so Kien barked at them. Cows are so easily stopped.

This reserve is vast with many paddocks. The sheep were in this paddock but they didn't come near us.

We got to an area where we were able to see the runway. It was a decent spot.

We came across a whole bunch of poisonous looking toadstools. Kien enjoyed smashing them with a stick.

It is a nice spot here, and good to get out and about on the first day of winter.
