One thing about New Zealand is you are never very far from the sea. Even inland areas are within a few hours driving. We actually have the 10th longest coastline in the world! Today’s image was taken on my Sony yesterday during my visit to Long Bay Regional Park. For anyone visiting the area, Long Bay is enormously popular in Summer as it has a long beach line and grassed area where families can set up for the day, groups can play sports, and all can cool off in the calm waters. It also has several bush and cliff top walks for those who don’t want to just laze in the sun. To top it off, the park has a decent number of BBQ’s for cooking up some sausages, steaks or what have you at lunch time. If you do come in the summer, aim to come early as car parks, although a lot of them, become scarce by late morning.
