Weekending...

 We had almost perfect weather this past weekend except for the strong winds that are hanging around at the moment. On Saturday afternoon Caitlin and I went for a coastal walk to see if the Pohutakawa's were flowering. This walk takes in the coast line between Onemana and Whangamata. We did this same walk last year but this time we walked 20 - 30 mins further to another beach. The above photo is looking north and out to Slipper island.  

 Looking southwards down to Whangamata

The water was a beautiful colour and amazingly clear.

 Our first glimpse of the beach...not a sole in sight. 

To have this beautiful beach all to ourselves and so close to home reminded us of why we are lucky to live on the Coromandel.

 A little starfish enjoying the quiet waters amongst the rock pools...

...along with these sea snails that Caitlin had fun re-arranging.

Some sweet and tiny wild forget-me-not flowers growing along the pathway.

Sunday was spent weeding in my garden and picking these roses for inside.
This coming week I have numerous sewing projects to get on with, some just for me, many that are Christmas gifts, one for a giveaway and something for my shop. Best I get on with it!

Ah, beautiful NZ, nowhere else on earth compares. If only there were plenty of job opportunities in my field, I'd move back in an instant

Oooh, that looks very tropical paradise like! In Scotland, even in the height of summer with the sun shining our beaches look cold and windswept lol

I'm so envious when you show pictures of these trecks you go on with your kids. Thanks for sharing with us.

What a beautiful area you live in. The beach looks like a paradise island. I'm not very good with flying but New Zealand is a place I'd overcome it for if I had the money.
