Picturesque Piha

Piha is that postcard perfect place. I felt like I was living in a photo straight from a travel magazine. It was so beautiful and I am so thankful to Andy and Jodi for taking me there! I hope to go again before the year is up!

It was about a 45 minute drive from Auckland, the roads were very twisty. It’s a good thing I don’t get car sick. Someone who does would be turning green before they could even get halfway there! Winding up the mountain, and down the other side was a great drive though. just totally beautiful. There were some great view spots along the way. My eyes were glued to the window the entire drive.

As we crested the mountain and I the beach came into view, I went speechless. It was the most beautiful sight I had seen. It was a great day for a great beach.

We stopped at a little cafe to buy some mince meat pies for lunch, then headed to the beach. Laying on the beach, building sandcastles, attempting skimboarding, and hunting (with no luck) for the blowhole, made for a wonderful day. The black sand beach was beautiful and well worth the minor sunburn. I think I will need to invest in some sunscreen s0on!

(Feet turning black from the sand!)

It was a great day, and I’m sure there will be many more days like this to come.
