Happy New Year

Monday, January 02, 2017


Robbie and I spent our New Year in the Bay of Islands at a peaceful retreat called Pagoda Lodge, where we camped (and glamped) for a few nights surrounded by nature and all of the good things. We even fell asleep before midnight - you know you're getting older when that happens.

We explored Paihia and Russell and even swam at a beautiful beach called Matauri bay. I don't normally swim as I have a huge fear of sea creatures but the water was so crystal clear enough that I could see my feet. Walks among tall Kauri trees, devouring fresh fruit fro-yo and swims beneath a waterfall made the start of the year so refreshing. There was so much to see and do that we have already planned on making another trip back up there this year. I didn't want to leave.

What did you get up to for New Years Eve?

Wishing you all of the love, joy and happiness this year! 2017 is going to be a good one!
