Weekend Wandering.

The boyfriend and I ventured away this weekend to my family bach in the Coromandel. It was freezing but one of the nicest weekends I've spent there and we even made it down to the beach once or twice. We were only there for one night and two full days but it was enough to feel like we'd had a real holiday, we even indulged and went to the Fire Place in Whitianga for tea which has the most delectable food and desserts to die for. I was quite suprised by how many people were around, the fish and chip shop was packed! The night we stayed and the night we left.

Richard got the chance to write some music, while I fiddled with owls and other goodies. Here are a few pictures from our 'getaway' for those who'd like to see.
Richard's new Trade Aid ted. They are seriously the cutest things you will ever see.
Freezing on the beach. Thank goodness for my grandmother's warm wooly cardi.
The frizbee rescue and our neighbours particulary good looking veggie garden in an old red dingy.

Some fresh new owls at sunset.
Have a lovely week!
