Some days you just want to pack up and leave, no matter how great life can be. Maybe it was a case of winter blues, but Saturday was one of those days. So we that is just what we did. Packed us and the pup into the car and headed for the coast. Best idea ever.
Kairakau is by far one of my favourite spots around Hawkes Bay, rugged and raw with the most beautiful escarpment keeping watch over the sleepy little place. The combination of that, the sweetest little Bach and 24 hours of fresh air and no cell phone coverage, it is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Until next time.
If you ever get the chance to visit Tongariro National Park. Go. Do it. You will in no way regret it.
Last weekend the husband and I had the pleasure of a long weekend in the crisp air. Celebrating six years of marriage, six years of the good, the great, and the heartbreaking. No tv, no work, just us, the fresh air, the mountains, incredible vistas in a dinky wee cabin with a fire place and of course a scruffy wee Frankie. Utter perfection.
Along with the above ( Plus copious amounts of cheese, crackers and wine ) there was a fair bit of picture taking, Here is the first of two installments.
Until next time
Unlike previous summers, we spent most of ours at home. We usually spend the summer in a bit of a mad rush between families and friends, never really feeling like we have had a break. So with this in mind we thought we would stick around, spending our days in a balance of renovations and swimming in the river.
We headed north to visit my parents in the new year, it’s quieter and feels more like home at that time of year. It never really feels like summer until I am swimming in the Northland waters.
And now to get back to ‘normal’ and get stuck into 2015!!
Until next time,
