Mount Maunganui Beach, New Zealand
It was a stunner of a day at Mount Maunganui Beach today. I thought I’d share some pictures of my local hotspot, and with it being the kids’ summer holidays, this is where we were. We hiked up the pictured hill, of which we Kiwis simply call The Mount. It’s a glorious spot with heaps of things to do.
The Mount is an extinct volcano *phew*, and it sits on the edge of a peninsula. It has a fabulous beach on one side, and a harbour-port on the other. It’s 761 feet high and takes about 45 minutes to climb.
Once you get to the top, you really don’t want to leave. Nope, not a chance. The best thing, is to make sure you’ve brought a picnic with you. Toss out a blanket and lie down. Then eat, relax, and take in the spectacular views.
After this, we hiked back to the main beach. The kids love swimming here, and there’re always treasure hunts or other sponsored events running at this time of the year. So much fun.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a little of my backyard.
Also, the chance for the four-page critique remains open until this Sunday, 20th January. I’ll draw a winner on Monday morning using random.org and post the name then.
