Spent a hot afternoon snorkelling with the fishes at the Goat Island marine reserve, an hour North of Auckland. One day I’ll consider an underwater camera, to capture the beauty below the water’s surface.

Kim and Ron were married at the lovely Gracehill Vineyard in Kumeu, where even the rain wasn’t going to spoil their special day.

After spending the previous night at Whitianga and Cook’s Beach, headed further down the coast to Mt Maunganui. The summit of Mauao stands 232m high, with views along the peninsular and neighbouring Tauranga.

Tombolo land formation, where longshore drift has connected the islands and Mount itself to the NZ mainland.

After a brilliant trip to Cathedral Cove just a couple weeks earlier, decided to head out for a day of swimming and chilling on the soft white sand beaches.
