Birthday Treat

One of my favourite places to explore is the Waitakere coastline of Whatipu beach and today we were exploring the Parahara dunes near Karekare beach.

The forecast was gale force winds of 100 kms per hour and 9 metre waves for later in the day. We were not disappointed but between the downpours there was time for botanising with a hardy group of 7. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.
