Once again we were in Tairua, but this time for Valentines…our view was spectacular and the moon added to the romance…

Sailors Grave

Another magical spot on the Coromandel Peninsula is Sailors Grave, so called as a sailor drowned there in the 1800s. The grave is now looked after by the NZ Navy. The full story is here:

At times the surf rolls in, and others, as when we visited, the sea was quiet with children playing in the estuary outlet…

So the school work is all finished for the Midyear break, and we went a way for a short break to Matapouri and stayed in an amazing Coastal Holiday Home…the views and walks were amazing.

Saturday was a fun day day at Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter, at the Paddle for Hope’s fundraiser day.

Took a few photos..think they show the fun everyone had on the stand up paddle boards 🙂

Australia’s second biggest bird of prey. Being a sea eagle he is not a true scientific eagle but really a giant kite.
