Last night, some of these folks were tidying up their belongings, getting ready to go home, while others were sharing a beer with their neighbors, standing by the fence and looking at the beach across the road. A typical Kiwi summer holiday. The man in the green tent relaxed in either a hammock or a Lazy-Boy-type foldable chair, while the Mrs fussed about.
It's not a great shot, but I really wanted to capture the bittersweet mood of the motor camp without getting right into the faces of the holiday-makers on their last night. Teenagers were talking especially loudly with animated gestures with their new friends; kids were insisting on one last run down the slide while parents stood around waiting. I was feeling nostalgic about thier summer memories already.
Amazing how many had a satellite dish, too. (And it'll be a while before I post a photo with the rubbish bin right in the middle in focus!) At Kaiteriteri Beach, north of Motueka.
