How’ve you been? It feels like I’ve been doing laundry and endlessly unpacking ever since we got back from our hols earlier this week – although I must admit, I’ve also taken a moment or two to take advantage of this amazing summery weather!! We had the most amazing time – spending time as a family and exploring a spot we had not visited together before. We made so many special memories, but if I had to narrow it down, I would say the highlights were: the Stonestore in Kerikeri; the amazing views at Cape Reinga; fishing for sprats off the wharf at Mangonui and eating the most delicious fish & chips; beach walks and soccer games on the lawn at the bach in Rangiputa; and on the way home we got to cross the Hokianga Harbour on a car ferry, and finally walking through the Waipoua forest amongst the kauri giants (including Tane Mahuta) trying to spot fairies.
I hope your week has been just as magical – and let’s hope that this mini-summer is here to stay for a little longer!
