I’m staying at Solscape right now, an eco-friendly hostel overlooking Manu Bay near Raglan on New Zealand’s North Island. It’s a wonderful place, with all kinds of quirky accommodation ranging from railway carriages to tipis, mud houses to camp sites. Frankly, I wish I was going to be here a whole lot longer.
It’s a five minute walk through native bush from the main area to where the tipis are, in a secluded little site with solar power and water from a nearby stream. Along the way, I literally walked into this fern frond hanging out over the path and just had to take a photo.
A small moment of beauty, in a small country that’s full of them.
