I didn't have any time off over Christmas, so a chance to get away for a night was too good to pass up!
Just what I needed, a couple of days of doing nothing.
A mini break involving an overnight camp at Urenui Beach, just north of New Plymouth.
Traci joined us for the weekend and we got to try out our new 3-man tent.
These wee boxes were just over the fence from our tent. I was curious.
They were little nesting boxes for the Little Blue Penguin. They are the world's smallest penguin
and come ashore under the cover of darkness. Although it isn't the breeding season at the moment
the Little Blue Penguin's take to nesting boxes really well.
How cute, I really wanted to add a few homely touches, but I resisted the urge. :))
Ah, lots of swimming, and sun and reading and sleeping. Perfect!
