What a week....

It was the best!!!!  Kawau was so restful and relaxing.  I can't believe how much I enjoyed doing very little.... just a walk or two, some kakaying, heaps of swimming and reading and generally doing nothing much.   Our trip over last month was great... no waves so I coped ( inclined to get a bit sea sick).  The bach we were staying at is lovely - set back in the hill side... so a lot of steps up to it and down the other side to the beach.   Good exercise!!!!  Being set in the bush, there were heaps of birds... including a cheeky Weka who decided to investigate the house one afternoon and a wood Pigeon who flew in the back door through the lounge and out the ranch slider..luckily it was open..  All in all an interesting week.
The views from the deck were just awesome.  The sunsets were just amazing.  It is one of the few places on the east coast of NZ were you can see the sun set.  One night the sailing ship Spirit of New Zealand was anchored in the Harbour... It is a tall ship - my camera isn't good enough to get a decent photo of it, but it did look impressive.

The weather for the week was mainly good... a bit windy one day and some very light showers on a couple of the later days in the week.  

Came home Sunday and back to work today :-(  but will definitely be seeing if we can use the bach again next year!!!

Thanks for stopping by.... and hope you enjoyed a dabble into my holiday.
