Weekend Wanderings

As per usual, I went up to Stanmore Bay this weekend.  I have a place up there that I am trying to rent out…the last year (almost) has been full of renovating, interior decorating (i.e. painting, furnishing).  I have decided to rent it out so that I can save some money, pay a bit off my mortgage and go traveling/work overseas.

It was very rainy yesterday.  We stopped at the Dutch Cafe in Orewa for lunch (yummy Apple gebak and Hot Chocolate).  I bought some Stroopwafel and some frite sticks (my addiction to these is so bad – need to avoid this shop at all costs).

We then went to my place to pick up the mail and then went down to the beach (by car – too rainy to walk).  My dog got out to have a play and run around and I snapped some cute pictures of her:

She found a tennis ball, which is the most annoying thing because she often refuses to give them up.  However, she was pretty good and mum stole the ball from her when she hopped back into the car.  It rolled under the car and we almost ran over it – Pipi the Dog was most disappointed.

I love Wintertime for the stormy, rainy weather.  It’s so nice and comfy sitting inside and I love the clothing choices for this time of year.

I love going to the beach in stormy weather as well.

What’s your favourite thing to do in Winter?
