The Hawkes Bay/Hastings City Council should really offer me a job as some kind of virtual tour guide. Having only lived here for around a year and a half we still have the wide-eyed appreciation of tourists, but also the benefit of a bit of local knowledge and pride. A perfect combination in my book.
Anyway we had a great time and now have a lot of sand (still) in the car to prove it!
Due to some better than anticipated weather and some close encounters with the water, the kids soon stripped off their jeans and footwear.
Isabelle discovered her shadow and was seen pointing at it and telling it to ‘go over there’. Andrew managed to catch these precious moments on camera.
She tried to run away from it and was quite surprised when she turned back around that it had managed to follow her.
We had some family stay on Saturday night and then we all went and enjoyed a soak at Ocean Spa on Sunday night. A good weekend.
