Our little get away.

From Whangaparaoa to Whangamata we quietly idled along at a leisurely pace to our destination for the evening. Traveling with Phoebe we made a few little breaks and pit stops along the way. But only having one child to organise made it pretty easy and not at all stressful.

With my spirulina to keep me going, I made it ok and Mark and I had a great time together.

Enormous, beautiful native trees

Whangamata Cafe meal. Phoebe discovers a new passion for garlic aioli dip. I totally understand the love affair.

A lovely weekend had by all. Even little breaks are truly worth it.
