Some of our pics...
The sand as the waves recede at Taupo Beach (which is in Northland and nowhere near Taupo) - it is a stunning bay, about 15km off the main road (which is way out the back of beyond anyway!)

Big mean crab at Ahipara Beach - no, really, it wasn't that big!! But we hadn't noticed them and suddenly we realised there were heaps of them!!

It was incredibly peaceful. I could spend a year there quite happily! And so warm and sunny *sigh* you'd love it.

I've been away for a week and am just catching up with things. I was very sorry to read about Shyler, it's so sad when a beloved pet goes. I hope you're all feeling a little better now.

These are fascinating pics - I love the sand one, so interesting! It looks like you had a great holiday.

Aw, thanks. We handled it pretty well really, everyone just moved on and left her gone to rest in peace I guess. Thanks for your kind words.

Lovely photo of the sand pattern. Strange to see a bus on the beach !

Heh, this beach is like a giant sand road, about sixty miles long, it's amazing. Cars do get stuck occasionally, and I'll have to find the pic Christy took of one of those! But it's huge, flat, mostly hard when the tide is out and unspoiled.

The odd sand pattern came from the OTHER side of the North Island.

Mostly the only vehicles are the tour buses and quad bikes and such like. They have races once a year, I think. It's a HUGE beach, and sixty odd miles of glorious flat sand when the tide is out. Not a house in sight, no cellular network even!

-I love that crab!!
That crab had attitude, I swear!
