This week I'm back to work after our annual summer holidays. How fast did that few weeks go? We had such a good break, lots of family time, relaxing in our pool, our travels to Lake Taupo and then recently a beach holiday . Hannah has one more week of holidays before the new school year starts on the 29th January.
We are very lucky to live close to several gorgeous beaches in Central Hawkes Bay. The past few years we've enjoyed staying at Blackhead Beach, which is only 30 minutes from home. We stay on Dad's friends' farm, which leads down to the beach. This year we'd booked a ten day stay and during this time, we had family and friends visit too.
We had a wonderful stay, lots of swimming, boogie boarding, walks along the beach, surf cast fishing. Friends of ours were also staying at the beach last week so we shared lots of meals and good times together.
There is no tv or cell coverage so it was a good opportunity for us all to "unplug" for the duration of our stay. I read a couple of books, nearly finishing knitting one sock and watched several episodes of some of my favourite Netflix shows that I'd downloaded.
Our 2019 beach holiday is all ready booked! In the mean time, I'll look forward to our next stay in March for Zoe's 17th birthday.
See you soon xx
