kate5kiwis: camping @ coromandel


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

camping @ coromandel

fun and laughter on a summer holiday...
of course we loved *tent city*...
we got the chunderbug for day two/three but apart from that it was a blast:

sun, surf, and smiles.
fresh fish and chilled asti riccadonna.
strings of glass beads from the little hippie himalaya shop along the road.

was so busy having fun that I took hardly any photos.
must remedy that next camping trip (in just over two weeks time)...

the perfect NZ beach,
complete with craggy pohutukawa trees.
oh i love those red red flowers

James Bond aka hubby hits the waves

M5 takes shelter with Aunty Carol, the hat lady

i do love tenting, but oh how wonderful it is to arrive home, pop the clothes in the washing machine, the dishes in the dishwasher and *push the button!!*, have a hot shower and smooth legs again... and fall asleep in our soft (uninflatable) bed.

Photos are wonderful, such a beautiful beach. And tent city, haven't done that in many years. I do have to say I don't know what chunderbug is, but glad it only lasted a day or two. Enjoy summertime!

What a blast! I enjoy camping as well and LOVE the beach...I MISS the beach and think I need a vacation. I know, I just took one but vacations with family over holidays although wonderful are not that relaxing.


Blessings in the New Year to you! Hugs!
