Today we are going to have Dante for the day... which is something that will make me very happy.
He's such a delightful, entertaining kid.
And he loves being here.
I'm hoping to talk Stew into taking us to the beach, Maraetai would be lovely I think. It's not too far away, and it's a very safe beach for littlies.
Maybe I will have my first swim this summer? Ha ha, summer is pretty much over eh?
Oh well.. I hear the water is still very warm.
So that's the plan. Get the kid and go out somewhere for some relaxing downtime.
Well, even though the day was a bit windy and overcast, we decided to still go to the beach. Steve and Bex also came along.
It turned out to be a lovely few hours. The beach was virtually deserted!
ABOVE: See... deserted! It was perfect weather for us, not too hot. No one had a swim as we just didn't feel like it.
ABOVE: Typical teenager... at the beach... but more interested in her phone!
ABOVE: Archer surrounded by seagulls, he spent a lot of time crawling around trying to catch them.
ABOVE: Ok... it's a random duck.
ABOVE: We had hot dogs and chips on the beach for lunch. It was lovely. Archer tried drinking the tomato sauce. *smiles*
