Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010

They had come from Hong Kong (L&R) and Sydney (centre) with their parents to help us celebrate a wonderful family Christmas. The tide at Sandy Bay helped to line them up as they were busy playing in the sand.

To Catch a Sunset

Christmas Day Sunset at Ngunguru

Christmas Day Sunset at Ngunguru

I was not the only one to marvel at the incredible sunset on Christmas day at Ngunguru (Tutukaka Coast) — but I did not want to get my feet wet. A spectacular sunset completed a lovely holiday in Mark and Trudi’s bach and the Bellmain House Bed and Breakfast. Here we see just the reflected glory in the water of the estuary.

At the ArtBunker

If your parcels were as beautifully gift wrapped as these here in the window display of the ArtBunker in Atkinson Road, Titirangi, you might well be forgiven if you have not opened them yet. But Boxing Day is for unboxing and heading off to the beach (or Boxing Day Sales?).

A car door wide open into the footpath, adorned with feet. The other end deep in conversation on the phone. Could not resist.
