No resolutions, just a quick gloat...

Of course Max the Mastiff & the knitting made it to the beach too!

Sigh....  I should feel sorry for all those poor souls out there in the Northern Hemisphere that are freezing their tits/nuts off in the coldest Winter in memory, but I don't.  There's a reason I live here, firstly New Zealand is the greatest little-big countries in the world & Hawkes Bay is a jewel in it.

Glorious Ocean Beach - Hawkes Bay

Being able to pack the family up & head to the beach for a day out is Gold.  We have a lovely wee beach just 5 minutes walk from our house & just 20 minute drive away is one of the nicest beaches you'll find anywhere - Ocean Beach.

Hugo just loves the 'beeesch'

So with picnic, sun shade, copius amounts of sunscreen for the melanin challenged (aka Me) & an umbrella for the dog, we spend 4 delicious hours with the kids enjoying a truly classic Kiwi Summer pastime.
Louis best beachy smile.

Who needs New Years resolutions when you already have everything you'd every wish for!

  1. I'm in the Northern Hemisphere...in the US...and it's not been that cold. I mean, it's winter and I live a few hours outside of Chicago but winters here could be so much worse.

    At any rate, I'm jealous of your beach!
