Bye, bye beach…

Tomorrow morning I will be going to New Zealand and it will be quite a while before I see my beach again. So this morning I made a monumental effort and biked down to see the sun rise.

The surfers also arrived to catch the early morning waves.

The seagulls preened and watched the passing parade.

Then I went up the steps, at a more sedate pace than this young woman. To walk through the bush.

Then it was time to go home, have breakfast and start packing.

Bye bye to my blogging buddies I may not be around for a while. I’ll miss you all.
