Day tripping...

I couldn't end the week without sharing a few more pictures of our weekend away on the coast north of Auckland. It has been a gloriously sunny July week for the school holidays. We have been too, too lucky.

We went to Pakiri Beach at sunset. The drive down through a steep, wooded and oh-so-green valley was breathtaking.

 At the bottom is a white, white beach with that sand that's so fine and clean it squeaks when you walk.  We're going back earlier in the day next time  - and with our swimming gear when it warms up.  
The sharp eyed among you may have noticed I have been playing with my blog layout. When I started this blog I did a bit of a DIY job and thought I'd fix it rather sooner than I have. Now I have a professional on the case - my much more talented brother who is a graphic designer and has a far more hip and funky approach than moi. Stay tuned. And let me know what you think!


  1. The 3rd pic is so lovely, looks like a great spot :)

  2. The new layout is lovely and clean...a pleasure to look at. And those first two photos...soooo frameworthy!

  3. So glad I found your blog Ann, looking forward to following your adventures. What a beautiful part of your world you are living in! Have a great weekend.

  5. Great photos, Ann! Love those silhouette shots. And that 3rd one is so NZ - love it!


Thanks for taking the time to write, Ann x
