Yesterday the weather changed quite a lot in that it was raining and quite grey so we sure were lucky on Sunday. We went up to Warkworth and Matakana not having been there for a very long time. Years ago when the boys were very young we went camping at Pakari Beach but we didn't quite get that far. We went to Wendelholm (sic?) Park which was really lovely. This is me looking out onto the inlet.
Couldn't resist a photo when there is a frame to do so through -
The pohutakawa trees are starting to come out in places - they are magnificent when they all appear along the coast
a closeup. Then we went to Morris and James in Matakana and bought a platter - found it difficult to decide but as it was closing time they were rather anxious for us to leave. It has some reddy colours in it so looks like it fits the ruby idea. Take a pic when we get home.
