Mid winter at the beach

After a week of appallingly stormy weather we woke this morning to brilliant sunshine and a day more like spring than mid-winter.

Definitely a day to be outside – in fact a perfect day for the beach… so that, my friends is just what we did!

The day was unbelievably warm, although there is a frost forecast for tonight.

    Greetings from a still rather cool Sweden, but Iยดve got the craftsmen in, so itยดs appropriate!

    Beautiful isn’t it?!! We live at Papamoa Beach (up the Mount Maunganui end) and it was ATROCIOUS here all week. I had to drive to Masterton and back on Wednesday and it was AWFUL! A sunny walk round the mount today was just fantastic! Love the pics of the kids at the beach. I sort of miss not having little kids now! Keep posting them! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Helen, I grew up in Papamoa (my parents still live there) and I really miss the beach! Raglan is very nice, but so different from the BOP east coast beaches! X

    You live in a really wonderful place!! Here it looks as if it might rain, sooner or later during the day: the perfect time to tidy up inside the house *irony mode on* the kids are going to love this! *irony mode off*. Have a nice time!

    How beautiful! Looks like your kiddos enjoyed a wonderful day at the beach ๐Ÿ™‚ How different NZ’s beaches look from our San Diego beaches. My husband and I would love to visit NZ someday.
