one tree hill

I have written about Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill before in this blog. The last time I walked through the park during a spring storm but today I walked right round it on the most beautiful summer’s day. The sheep were resting in the shade of the trees and dense foliage completely shaded Twin Oaks Drive. There were families picnicking, children climbing trees, a bride and groom having their photos taken, people playing volleyball and petanque. I skirted the Cornwall cricket club grounds where there were two spirited games on the go – at last a decent summer for cricketers! I climbed to the summit and marvelled at the clear blue sky and the views out to Rangitoto, the Waitakeres and Mangere Mountain. I saw a Chinese visitor spreading his arms and talking excitedly to his companions – I’m sure he was saying “Look at this. Isn’t it wonderful!”
