90 Mile Beach

The one slightly dodgy day on our holiday was the perfect day to head west to The Big Beach.  Ethan was all about the tua tua’s and was positive he would love them – he didn’t.  Luckily we ‘tagged and released’ most of them and Dave ate the rest for tea.  Tara really got amongst the shellfish gathering and perfected her toes in the sand stance rather quickly!

Could there be anything more quintessentially Kiwi?  A Hangi….in a pie.  Magic.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
