Big Bay, Awhitu

The first stop on our trip was at Big Bay. It's on the Awhitu Peninsula, just south of Auckland.

I was quite taken with all the sealife on the beach from anemones to coral, oysters to sand dollars and even a sea slug. But most of all I was intrigued with the beach itself. The 'sand' looked like pieces of hollowed out tree trunks at some places. Other parts were oyster covered rocks. It's a definite change from Taranaki beaches.

Lovely to see all the things you found at the beach and nicely presented in the 2 collages. Happy Valentine's Day. Have a lovely weekend.

Incredibly gorgeous beach; one for hiking not laying out on a beach towel obviously. That would be fine with me; I'd rather walk and look for stuff anytime.

Beautiful pictures.
