LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

Hamilton central city skyline from across the Waikato River
I think that views across water always seem to be  interesting, hence this shot taken during our grand daughter's Waka race on Saturday. It is a view of the back of buildings which mainly face Hamilton's main shopping street, Victoria Street.

The Waikato River is one of Hamilton's natural beauty attractions. What makes it an interesting one is that it is only straight where it runs past the central shopping centre. The remainder of the river's course meanders through the city, adding to its interest and beauty. There are well laid river paths on the city side which run for several kilometres and are shared between walkers and cyclists, and some limited paths also along the opposite side of the river.

Our city is now beginning to gain a tourist interest, but mainly it is a place of interest and beauty for our residents. Click on the photo to enlarge.
