It’s been a wonderful few days at the beach. Just what the doctored ordered and as luck would have it summer arrived at the same time. We booked a bach (a beach summer house) and the most energetic thing we did was chase the bassets around the beach.
Riversdale is a small settlement about 2 hours from where we live. There is nothing there but beach houses, a beach and miles of space. It’s a surfers paradise but also a brilliant place to wander, paddle and explore rock pools. We were lone figures on the beach almost all of the time. Apart from someone who had been cray fishing, a beachsurfer and a group of school kids who flocked to admire and pat the bassets.
Hanging out reading, relaxing and not thinking about anything was the order of the day. And a spot of photography of course. Here’s a short video of our exploits so you can get a taste of what makes New Zealand such a stunning place to be. You can see on Flickr here.
