Our holidays have come to an end, just as it feels like Summer has decided to arrive in New Zealand.
We just couldn't let our holidays slip by without our annual pipi collecting trip...
Of course there was also some crab collecting, as well as a bit of starfish eating by Boo (the naughty dog ate 4 starfish in the end! Ewww!!).
I love the beach and all the adventures the kids have while there. So much to explore...
A day perfectly ended by eating pipis and cockles on fresh white bread, drizzled in vinegar. Sooooo good!! (and the ONLY way to eat cockles in my opinion).
Farewell Summer holidays... I will miss you (but I won't miss the sand you left behind in the togs, and the bits of uneaten starfish strewn around on the beach).
Tomorrow I start my new job - the first proper job I've had since becoming a Mum nearly 13 years ago!! I'm excited about the adventures before us this year.
