We took one afternoon off and went for a walk around the base walking track at Mount Maunganui...it is a beautiful place. You start at Pilot Bay
This is the calm side
Then you walk around where the harbour entrance is
A tourist posed happily!! Behind him is part of Matakana Island.
We had to go up several steps and down ghe other side as the path has been washed out in a storm.
The pohutukawa tree was still in flower.
Two boats were heading out to do some deep sea fishing
The ocean was rolling in on the rocks
We came around to the surf beach at Mount Maunganui..there was a beach volley ball competition happening and lots of bodies out surfing.
We wandered back to the car and headed home to do more sorting.
A little sewing of circles has happened but not a lot, they are packed in my bag so I will do a photo next post.
