Looking towards Waihi Beach township

Sea anemone and limpet found in a rock pool

Waihi Beach on a cold grey Tueday

A slightly belated post I know, because The Scout and I have just arrived back home after a long weekend away without children.  We stayed at Athenree, near Waihi Beach. After the frost had thawed away on Monday we went for a short hike from Waihi Beach to Orokawa Bay.  This would be one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen, I am guessing that it would be a lot busier in the summer months, but there were only a handful of people there that day.  So much lovely driftwood I would love to have brought home to use in my garden too.

A final walk today before we came home shows a much different picture.  Now it's back to reality with work tomorrow for both of us.


  1. a pretty place, nice break without the kidlets!

  2. Looks idyllic, its always nice to have a break from the children. You captured some beautiful scenes, I particularly loved the shot of the anemone and limpet.

  3. ........so are you trying to make me homesick. That beach you hiked to is one of my favourite places to go. So unspoiled.
    We're on the train heading to Vancouver BC. Lovely train ride. Very scenic.

  4. Gorgeous photos! Waihi, I know it very well, we have a bach there! Even on a cold grey Tuesday it's still great you got all rugged up & walked!

  5. Looks like a lovely tranquil place for a quiet weekend away! So nice :) hope the week back at work isn't too much of a drag!

  6. Hi,
    It looks just wonderful. My kind of beach. :-)
    I am so glad you got time to go with your sweetheart.
    I love the photo of the anemone ~ a great photo!

  7. It is so beautiful!!! I love the beach in winter, it is, to me, so much more beautiful than in the height of summer! xx
