Pleated skirt and Paul Klee, and a splash of dolphins

Hi everyone one, I am trying to get back into the groove with regards to posting more regularly.  Fortunately today there was some time for an after-work-photo-shoot:

 Turquoise pleated skirt, from a school fair part of a $1 a bag
Paul Klee printed top, previously a maxi dress from Presbyterian Yellow shop for $8 or thereabouts.  Now I have a skirt and a top!!
Fluoro shoes, retail.  Selection of bangles all from various op shops.  Yes, my hair is a bit different, I went to the hairdresser last night for some pampering.

This morning was just beautiful and as we were driving down the road to school (not late for a change) my 11 yo screamed out "Dolphins!"  So, we did a quick u-turn and found somewhere to pull over and all raced over to the harbourside walkway where we had a reasonable view of a pod of bottlenosed dolphins swimming towards Port Chalmers.  

Alas I was shooting blind - the camera was on the "foliage" setting which is what I use for taking photos of my peonies - and also the sun was in my eyes.  So I just held up the camera and snapped off as many pics as I could.  The pics are a bit over-exposed but you can definitely see fins!!!!

We are very lucky in Dunedin to live on such a beautiful harbour and it was so special to see dolphins swimming.  The dolphins featured on the front page of the local paper - the photos are  is fantastic and if you want to have a look click here.
