Weekending - Waipu Cove

My family and I went away for a long weekend to our favourite beach.   Waipu Cove, about 2.5 hours north of where we live in Auckland.  Beautiful expanses of beach, with long stretches of glorious fine white sand. We used to camp here a lot in Summer when Miss B and Mr J were younger, this trip, we stayed in a little kitchen cabin at the camping ground, just metres from the beach.  We were very lucky to have good weather, though the breeze was a little cool at times.  It was a little bit cold for me to swim, but Miss B and Mr J went in and tried boogie boarding, unfortunately the waves didn't co-operate.  We beach walked, and beach combed, explored the rock pools - finding crabs, anenomes, kina and even octopus.

Now I'm back home, enjoying another couple of days off before I go back to work.
