Maddie Goes on an Outing

First to the beach near Pikowai, where the waves danced silver and there was not a soul in sight.

Then to my place to check the house and contemplate raking up the leaves.  I decided they look too nice where they are.

Then back to the farm in time for tea and to watch the sun slide down behind the hills.


  1. "The waves danced silver" is a very good thing, and leaving the leaves alone gets you ten out of ten.

  2. I'm with Alden on this.

  3. yep, Alden said what I wanted to say!

  4. Maddie is gorgeous, as is your particular corner of New Zealand.

    1. Thanks Bob! The Bay of Plenty is lovely, but then, so is a lot of New Zealand.
