So, yesterday, with my new photographic tendency, I took you to Papakowhai and Paremata and depicted ordinary parts of the suburbs on a regular summer weekend. Now I will try to do the same with the Kapiti Coast, travelling from my relatives' old place in Raumati South up the coast through Raumati Beach and Paraparaumu Beach to leave the coast via Kapiti Airport. Not that it's much of an airport any more. It's amazing how much land has been sold for residential development. Again, I'll let the photos stand for themselves. In most cases, I was just taking photos out of the car as we drove various places, though some are from when we stopped at Raumati Beach.
