The End of the Line

end of the line

The end of the Johnsonville line for Debbie’s weekly quotation inspired challenge which is Winston Churchill’s

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

But to quote New Zealand poet Dennis Glover

I do not dream of Sussex downs
or quaint old England’s 
quaint old towns—
I think of what may yet be seen 
in Johnsonville or Geraldine

Beginning, middle and end

Whairepo Lagoon on the Wellington waterfront did not have an official name until 2015. It had long been known informally as Frank Kitts lagoon after the long serving mayor for whom the surrounding park is named or simply as The Lagoon.

Whairepo is the Maori name for the eagle rays that to this day shelter and feed there.
