Winter beach holibobs 2013

Winter beach holibobs 2013

Woofings, furiends!

It is mid-winter here in New Zealand… I just got back from a short holibobs with mum and dad. It was a bit chilly, but we had sunshine and blue sky every day, it was pawsome!

We rented a little cottage right next to Onetangi Beach on Waiheke Island. Waiheke is about an hour by car ferry from Auckland, New Zealand.

Onetangi Beach is my favouritest beach: it’s 1.87km (1.16 miles) long… doggy bliss!

Here are my holibob photos…

I keep a good lookout on the car ferry!

Ahhh, what a beautiful sunset on Onetangi Beach!

Lucky mum took this picture when she did, moments later yours truly chased the seagulls! BOL!

I can even keep an eye on the pesky seagulls on the beach from the cottage we stayed at!

There's a good view of the beach from the deck, too.

There's more to Waiheke Island than stunning beaches... there are also pawretty green hillsides, complete with moo-moos and sheeps - as well as vineyards.

The beach is definitely my favourite place though!

Oh dear... so many beaches, such short little legs. I got tired and dad had to carry me!

I'm so tired, I think I'd like to drink this coffee, please.

The holibob was pawsome – though I am happy to be at home again, and rest up a bit!

Love ā€˜nā€™ nose licks,
