The Edge of The Shire
Kaihoka, New Zealand.
“It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth".
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion
Sunrise over Farewell Spit
and no one sings me lullabies
and no one makes me close my eyes
so I throw the windows wide
and call to you across the sky
This is where my heart truly lives
Peering over the wind-blown manuka, looking at mountains.
Frosty Jack at Langfords
One of the last real stores in New Zealand. You just HAVE to visit Langfords Store, Bainham. Check out The Hobbit Location Guidebook for directions.
So We Stared
The trees, the clouds, the fog. It was the wind.
Crepuscular on the road to Farewell Spit
Life is a mirror
and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.
