Piha Beach

Piha Beach

We’ve had a great day on the beach…

And what a beach! Huge rolling waves, clear blue water, golden/black sand – (the sand is volcanic hence black!) and perfect weather.

A lovely day.

A couple of notes of caution:
the currents are very strong but as I was only paddling in the shallow water,  I wasn’t too affected 🙂
And there is more rain in the weather forecast but not today. We’ve been so lucky to have breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, and a glorious sunny day on the beach.
Karekare Falls

Karekare Falls

Oh and we did tear ourselves away to visit the Karekare waterfall… Our fourth waterfall of the holiday. This one was tall and cascading and quite majestic.
