We are up fairly early, we have to clock out of here by 10 am... so not too much of a sleep in.
But never mind, it gives us more time to explore and enjoy today, here in the north.
***HAPPY BIRTHDAY LACY!*** Dad and I hope you have a really nice day, and you don't feel too old! 35 today... wow.
First up for today, we are visiting the Whangarei Falls. It's a really lovely waterfall right on the outskirts of the town.
After that, back into town to visit a Quilt shop near the waterfront.
I forgot to mention yesterday. We did visit the local Hospice shop, it's HUGE. But I was surprised at the price of things. Way more expensive than our shop! I didn't get anything there. Weird.
Right, back to today. After the quilt shop we shall probably start heading towards Omaha... where I hope to have a good walk along the beach. Maybe even have a swim.
It will depend on the weather. I have no idea what sort of day it's supposed to be.
We are in no hurry to get home... so don't cook dinner for us Bex/Steve! *smiles*
Well.. we are home. What a fantastic time we had. Today started out at the Whangarei falls, then the quilt shop.
Then off to Waipu Cove and Langs Beach, followed by Omaha for a swim.
The water was really lovely, cool to get in, but once in it was neat.
At Waipu we found the little local Hospice shop was open ... we found something in there, and also at a little gift shop at Omaha.
After our swim we went into Matakana and had a very late lunch at the pub. It's changed hands ... so the amazing 'Matakana Burgers' were no more. But their Beef burgers and chips were still lovely.
I'm working on the photos now. I will try and get some up tonight, and some for tomorrow too.
