I walked until I found a quiet, gentle spot called Waikawa Bay. Some 6 kilometres outside of Picton township. Boats floated and shifted with the tide while every now and then the odd person passed in a vehicle. It seemed rather idyllic.
Waikawa Bay in Picton reminds me a lot of Halfmoon Bay in Stewart Island, only on a smaller scale. I think it’s the combination of the shape of the bay, the surrounding hills, the boats at anchor that drift with the tide but the similarities are far beyond physical. The casual, easy going nature of the people that past by and the relaxed feel of the small Picton Bay are hard not to enjoy. I spent a morning out in the water taking all kind of shots and watching the sun reflect in crazy ways between the boats.
