Relaxing at Thames

I  keep being told the summer in NZ has been poorly but I continue to enjoy lovely sunshine with the only rain on the morning I was on the bus back to Auckland.

With the schools back I enjoyed a lovely paddle on a popular beach which would have been full the week before

And some fantastic vistas as we drove over the hills of  Coromandel for lunch at a mussels restaurant attached to a mussels farm  - yum.

I  was intrigued to see lots of rainbow painting around Thames  - the result of a gift of paint to local schools and community groups 

And of course I found another great spot to relax

very interesting to see what the gift of colour has created. Nice view with your lunch.

Loving that rainbow view - how creative. And your sea shots are so inviting. Glad to know that you are out enjoying it even if the natives complain!

The rainbow paint is very cheery. We could do with some of that round here.
