On the Rawene car ferry earlier this week, road tripping with dad. (Yay, a day off work!) Discovered that Far North locals get a discounted fare for the car ferry. Choice! 🤘 Thanks to my dad for the photo. 😘
Fush n chups n L&P on Opononi Beach, you don't get much more kiwi than that!
So happy it blossomed in time for Valentine's Day. ❤️🌻
Almost there! 🌻
Sunflower is waiting for the sun - as am I! 🌻
Practicing kayaking safety manoeuvres in the pool... except this wee rascal didn't want to get off the kayak! ❤️🐶
Impromptu photo shoot in my man's workshop... all snapped on my iPhone 5 in the 5 minutes it took for my fab fella to glue something for me!
Awesome to catch up with my sailing friends tonight at @boisailingweek... you know who you are. ❤️ ⛵️ It's gonna be so hard getting up at 5am for my @leafproduce market stall, but right now it seems worth it! 😂
Watch out for cheeky monkeys hiding in the subtropical gardens at Wharepuke! 🐒🌴 Treated dad to lunch at @foodatwharepuke - he has been working flat out in my garden. 🙏❤️
Evening paddle on Lake Manuwai. 👌
Finally, it's a swimming day! ❤️☀️🐶
Announcing: the new website for @maxpaddlesnz is live! Words, photos, and web design - all done by me. 😊 (I have cost-effective packages that take care of the whole process: http://www.websitesbycornelia.co.nz) 💻
This is one of the crappiest summers I've had in the 14 years I've been in New Zealand! Even the usually cheery hibiscus look bedraggled and over it! 🌺
At least all this rain is topping up the irrigation lakes, e.g. Lake Manuwai, where Mr Baywatcher and I went kayaking recently. 🛶💧
My puppy has a raspberry obsession! 😂❤️🐶
