Today was our last day with our flatmate V, who is heading home to France. So we went out for a fairly naughty brunch (pancakes! with mascarpone and strawberries!) at the beach cafe and then took a lovely stroll along the beach and back. It was overcast with a decent wind, but the water was warm. The Pohutukawa trees are all coming out in bloom, the pic below is of three of the SMALL ones. The beach isn't even 2 km long so I only just squeaked over 5 km for the day, once I did the usual steps just messing about at home. Will extend it a bit tomorrow.
