fish and chips

Today we took a drive to Maraetai Beach (pronounced  “my-right-eye “). We left home in the sunshine although it was rather chilly, passed through pouring rain and eventually arrived there in semi-sunshine, semi-overcast weather. We then did the Kiwi favourite thing – we bought fish and chips and sat on the beach like a flock of ravenous seagulls!!! It was rather cold but we had a great time anyway.

Don’t you love the name of the takeaway – “Two Turtles and a Grumpy Fish”. Makes me wonder hmmm…. 

The kids enjoyed playing on the pier  – got some great action shots of them.

We then enjoyed a scenic drive home through the countryside looking at beautiful autumn trees and numerous sheep of course.




All in all a great day!!
