View from Braids Hill

On 25 March we were heading home from Dunedin and I asked Nigel to pull in to an easily missed carpark at the bottom of this hill, then we walked up a way to a Beach Access walkway that I’ve seen many times before when we drove up the hill. It looks very inviting because you can see you’re heading into a ‘tunnel’ of bush. It didn’t disappoint! I took the photo of Nigel after we’d returned from our walk. The rest of the photos show the view from further along the track (after which we descended to the beach below). The beach itself is a long one called Brighton Beach and this suburb, of Dunedin, is called Ocean View. New Zealand.

The day was very bright so the photos vary depending on how camera/photographer responded and how I edited them afterward. The first two pics were taken by Nigel, last two by me.

  1. That beach looks utterly beautiful. πŸ™‚ BTW, your title caught my eye very quickly – we have ‘Braids Hills’ on the outskirts of Edinburgh – I guess that’s another connection to Dunedin.

  2. The beach is beautiful, but what caught my attention was the name Brighton Beach. That was the title of one composition our all-state band played in 1963. It’s quite well known among high school musicians. The composer, William Latham, was a music professor at the university I first attended, but I never had the chance to study under him. I arrived just as he was leaving for another school in 1965 — but I did get to meet him.
