And a Happy New Year to you all! This is New Year's Eve for Helen and I down at the family bach at Waihi beach. Awaiting the last few hours of 2008 to pass, and (below) enjoying a meal at a local restaurant.
. . . and the inevitable cycling we spent much of our time doing. This is the cafe we got to on our second day.
beautiful Waihi beach, and the swims we had in that rolling clear surf. Very refreshing after a bike ride!
Stopping for coffee at the local aerodrome.
Lolling on the lawn beside the inlet between Bowentown and Athenree.
