michael has been away working for the past six weeks and flitting in on the weekends. this has drawn to a close for now so we decided to whip away for the day on a mini camping trip to whangamata. you know, we always head there!
we stopped in the karangahake gorge and trekked up the hill with our coffee making kit.
on the way to whanga we stopped at a favourite valley and checked out a piece of land we rather like and met the very friendly neighbours!
and gazed at the beautiful little river that runs through it
then it was onwards to the surf, and more coffee!
feasted our eyes on this before we hit the road north and home
