one of the unique things about the North Island of NZ is that it tapers to point where two coasts can be seen simultaneously and two oceans meet. it's a place i've never been, but this weekend we did the 45 minute trip to Cape Reinga. it was a perfect day and breath-taking to be at our land's end.
we then visited the enormous Te Paki sand dunes and drove down the stream to 90 Mile Beach (assisted a vehicle stuck in the soft sand on the way past).
we drove home down the west coast which gave JR a chance to work on his boy-racer look (although, the people mover kinda ruins it)
the next day we went to Maitai Bay at Karikari peninsular where some real, actual swimming happened.
my body and soul are thriving with all this extra warmth and vitamin D. i hope you had a wonderful weekend too
