Once or twice a year, when we can't think of anywhere specific to go, we drive around Mt Taranaki and meander down some beach roads. This weekend was one of those times, since the weather forgot it's suppose to be getting cooler as we head into autumn.
Lots of people brought their dogs to play in the sand and water.
I take a photo of these trees every time we go down this road. I think it might be a reminder to keep growing, no matter what happens.
I believe this is toe-toe on the left and pampas on the right.
Although the water was far from calm, there were many who braved the waves to swim or surf.
Mt Taranaki, in all his radiant glory.
