One of the fun parts about moving to a new place is exploring. We spent the weekend checking out some of the local coast line - just 15 or so minutes from home.

Langs Beach - beautiful white sand, views out to the Hen & Chicken Islands, just stunning. I look at this photo and find it hard to believe it is still officially winter. We skyped my auntie in Christchurch earlier in the day and she still had lumps of snow around her house from the big snow dump they had earlier in the week. The weather here is amazing.

The perfect spot for some knitting while the kids paddle. (wip is a blanket square - nice portable easy knitting on the go).

Learning happens everywhere.

The kids had a great time playing in the huge 'perfect for climbing' trees at the top of the beach.

Soaking up some winter sun and making sand angels.

What a perfect way to spend a winter's afternoon.


  1. Wow what a beautiful beach (and winter? Pfiff!). Looks like this move is shaping up nicely.

  2. Oh that beach is beautiful! So envious!

  3. Beautiful scenery, children and weather :)
