Long Bay

Saturday was such a sunny warm day that I packed up Sybilla and all her baby stuff (which you would not believe the amount of stuff it takes to get a baby through the day) and we went to see Grant and I made everyone go to the beach!

This is Long Bay Beach

He is sooo tan! Its insane!

When walking to the beach we saw Jem's friend Brook, so she joined our gang.

Me the whitest person on the beach.

Sybilla loved running around on the beach! Mike kept trying to stop her from eating the sand but it was hopeless.

yum sand, nutritious and delicious!

Jem found a hat also hahahah

We stayed as long as we could but it got really hot and it was time to go home.
Saturday night Grant and I and the roommates wandered over to a neighbors house that was having a party and for as hot as it was during the day it was cold that night! I stayed as long as I could handle but I was freezing, apparently later that night there was a huge fight in the middle of the street that Grant said he enjoyed watching from the balcony. hhahhaha
Sunday was another really sunny nice day so we went to the hardware store first for me to get some art supplies and then to the Warehouse where I got a floaty for the pool. The rest of the day we just hung out and floated around the pool, it was a really nice relaxing day!

The bay of Islands! and the Grey Lynn Festival!

Thursday Anna and I drove to the Northern part of the Island to the Bay of Islands. We arrived and decided to find a place to stay. We ended up getting a room at a back packer place that was really nice and only 60 dollars for the both of us.

Our Room.

After we got our room we went for an adventure and ended up kayaking it was super fun but because we weren't prepared we got soaked hahhaha so the picture below is of all of our clothes hung up around the room to dry. It takes ages for things to dry in NZ by the way!


Me, Thursday night after Anna and I had dinner in Bay of Islands.



Friday we went to Russell and looked at all the historical crap.


Russell is a really small cute town we enjoyed a cup of coffee and the sunny weather.





We took a ferry to Russell from Paihia the Bay of Islands.


on our way home we took the long way and drove to Keri Keri and had lunch then to Opononi and down the west coast.













Sand dunes in Opononi the west side of the very north part of the Island.


The biggest tree in NZ!





Saturday Afternoon a group of us went to the Grey Lynn Festival where they had bands, booths with food, and all kinds of people eating and drinking and enjoying the sun. We brought our own premade drinks and didn't really eat a lot of food so everyone ended up pretty drunk. After the festival we all went to a house party and took a cab home barely anyone remembers what happened! hahahhah
