And it was fabulous. Mish found a cool bach, right on the beach, and whisked me away for a birthday weekend.
Steps up to the bach, a nice little modernised beach house sitting between two Norfolk pines.
Taken at low tide, out for a paddle.
Below is our view of Kapiti Island, taken from the living room. My idea of a good time. Reading, coffee, beach walks. Walk to beach from house: heaven on a stick.
Sunday morning 'surf 'and seagull.
A bit of macro photography at the water's edge.
After breakfast in a local cafe with Diana and Robynne - birthday weekend for Diana and me. Bye bye 50s.
Sunset, about 8.30 in mid February. Going down behind the South Island
