Just up the road from where I live & work is this lovely bit of forest on what’s called the Eastern Walkway - these being Wellington’s eastern suburbs, though to be honest I never have any idea which way is north in this town. (Unless there’s a howling northerly raging through, then I’ve got a rough idea.)
Anyway, this has always been one my favourite little walks - you disappear into this for a brief walk, and suddenly it’s all a bit spiky and spooky. Of course it’s not a huge forest, and you’re back to sweeping views of Breaker Bay a few minutes later; but it’s deeply cool while it lasts.
(And a little bit of Alien Skin Exposure 3 makes it all the more freaky. I keep waiting for the winged monkeys to appear…)
