Cathy and I had our annual 'girlie' weekend away - this time to one of her friend's baches at Algies Bay, near Warkworth. Perfect mid winter weather, with crisp cold morning/night, and clear blue skies, almost too bright and glarey. We did manage one walk along the quiet bay (above) but most of the time spent either in the bach (below) listening to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander audio book series, watching DVD, eating, or. . .
enjoying some of the cosy guiltfree sleep ins, with the condensation on the windows inside and a hot water bottle heating the bed . . .
or, at the Matakana Farmers Market, roaming all the produce and selecting items for lunch and dinner.
