around the mountain

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.

This is a very nice place to visit. I´m a little bit jealous that you don´t have to drive so long to the beach and ocean.
Great impressions! Thanks for sharing

That is really a nice place. It seem to have a very fine grey sand. Mustbe soft to walk on barefoot.

A gorgeous part of the world. Love the energy of the water and most magical must be the scene of the horse riders on the beach.
