I flew up early this morning as I had to be in Christchurch for the early morning connection to Auckland on Monday. To make the most of it I flew up early to spend the day with my girl!
Arriving to a beautiful sunny day we decided to have a picnic at the beach! What a fabulous picnic we had.
We followed this up with a stunning walk from Waimairi down to and out the pier! All the way down we walked through the waves... Sun on our backs, warm water, children playing, people swimming, kites flying, does it get any better than this?
We walked out the pier and enjoyed the views, the surf school, the fishermen, the tourists, the buzz of Christchurch on a beautiful sunny day!
We rounded the day off with a very relaxed session at the pavilion listening to the sweet sounds of a couple of local young musicians.
So, then, what can be learnt from a day at the beach!

- Make the most of sunny days.
- Walk outdoors when possible.
- Always take opportunities to connect with family and friends.
- Picnic often.
- Enjoy the beauty of the ocean.
- Leave footprints.

- Respect and remember the power and beauty of nature!
