Summer arrived for Christmas so we managed some outdoor stuff. Feeling like a real Kiwi now, shorts, t-shirts and the beach. Have lost track of time a bit and I am not sure if it is just the Christmas thing or the fact that, having retired there is no need to be anywhere at any particular time or day. The improvement of the weather has meant I have had a couple of trips out with the family
We spent a few hours on Karioitahi Beach. The black sand and the wild Tasman Sea make it very spectacular but because of the holiday season quiet busy.
After Christmas, we, Mel, Dan and the boys oh and the dog went over to Waihi and had a nice day on the beach with some friends. Even got a boat ride. The boys were towed around on a biscuit and the dog just got wet.
All good here in The Land of the Long White Cloud.
