Sunrise over Paihia, Bay of Islands

One of life’s golden moments: sunrise over the Bay of Islands

Anne here . . .

So I was awake at 5.30am (touch of jet lag?). But watching the sunrise; listening to the early morning birds (Tui?); and having the background sound of waves gently breaking on the beach from the apartment’s veranda was just magical.

Truly one of life’s golden, memorable moments.
