My Genuine, Mass-Produced Good Wishes for 2016

This image shows my local seaside town last night : hot-spot for thousands who visit and also climb and sit around on the summit of the extinct volcano (Mauao - Mount Maunganui) all night and wait for the first day of a new year.  This would have been their view. Look at the hoards of people.

The other popular place is Whangamata where a tame New Year's Eve meant only 22 were arrested.

I was even more tamer-ly tucked up in bed having a lovely sleep.  Mmmm-mm!


  1. Happy New Year Kate

  2. I honoured my sofa, and then my bed. Too old for revelry. Best wishes, Cro x

  3. A very happy new year to you Kate.

  4. Sorry you didn't see in the new year with other Taurangans - for auld lang syne. Happy New Year Kate!
