Thought I'd share some photos from another small walk the girls and I did yesterday and one we had never done before although it's only 10 minutes drive away. This walk starts at the next beach along from where we live and follows the coast south back towards Whangamata. The above photo is looking south down into a rocky bay. The water was unbelievably clear and a beautiful turquoise blue.
Looking north towards Pauanui and Tairua and near where we had our picnic lunch.
There were a couple of seats along the walk and this photo is taken from one of them. The walk meandered along the top of the cliff face on the edge of the bush on one side then private farm land on the other. All the way the views were stunning!
The track then slowly dropped down through large pohutakawa's to a little secluded bay fringed by more pohutakawa's that will be covered in red flowers in a month or so. Although it was a long weekend here we still managed to get away from the holiday makers that flock to the Coromandel beaches. When we arrived at this little beach there was only one other small group of people there. Perfect!
Lots of rock pools to play in and hunt for little sea creatures. The girls had fun playing with tiny hermit crabs and then making sandcastles and the water wasn't too cold.

Another great little walk that we will definitely be doing again very soon but next time we'll bring something to swim in!
