Easter sailing holibobs 2013

Easter sailing holibobs 2013

Woofings! Here in New Zealand we’ve been enjoying the driest, warmest, longest summer, since like, furever!

So at Easter we set sail once again to our favourite spot: Te Kouma, in the Coromandel Peninsula. (Yes, I’ve been here many times, including Summer 2012 and earlier this year too.)

OMD, there are moo-moos on the hills - and on my beach!

I was fascinated by the moo-moos on my beach! We kept a very respectful distance from each other. (I would have loved to say ‘woof day’ to them, but mum and dad kept me away. Spoil sports!)

As you can see in the photo, we had our kayak with us! I repawted to you recently that I am now a kayaking dog, and I did more kayaking these holibobs.

Mum takes me for a spin on the kayak. Look how flat calm the sea is, it's pawsome!

Round the bay (and round the boat) we go... it's so pawretty!

So yes, we did lots of kayaking. But I digress. This blog post is about our Easter holibobs… and you’ll never guess what, the Easter Bunny came to see us in her little rowing boat!

 

The Easter Bunny brought chocolates for mum and dad! (This is the daughter of a friend of dad's... they were also spending their Easter holibobs on their boat.)

Chocolate's no good for dogs, but fear not, my furiends, I did not go hungry. Mum gave me a lovely big bone to nom on!

All too soon it was time to go home: holibobs are never long enough. Here I am on mum's lap while she's steering the boat. If you look carefully, I am so content that my eyes are closed and my tongue is poking out! I was like this for ages, I was totally blissed out!

Bye bye beautiful Coromandel, I'm sure we'll be back again next summer!

So that was my Easter holibobs!

Good times, my furiend, good times…
