Weekly Photo Challenge: Hope


In 1993 when I arrived in Katikati the main street would be empty by 4 pm.

Now, going in to town means crossing your fingers and hoping for that elusive parking space.

When I arrived here I was full of HOPE. Some of those hopes have been realised, some not.

I remain hopeful.

That many good things still await me.

Katikati has given me that – HOPE…

The bird in the sign is a native to New Zealand: a Pukeko.


These girls are a Katikati legend in the making. Bridget Martin and Kelsi Morris-Bullot are the Tangible Titans and the following clip is a tribute they wrote to Katikati called The Land of Dreams. Bridget played soccer with my son through college.

    1. Glad you like it – it is bizarre as we are a small town. However we are between two pretty big destinations and the highway goes right through the main town centre – it is a sore point but we can’t seem to get a bypass no matter how hard we try…


  1. Katikati sounds like a wonderful town… except for the small parking problem. Loved the video! Great entry Jo. i hope that all of your hopes are realised soon!
