Loving summer

Is there nothing more divine than a summer's day at the beach.

TH and I live next to the sea and nearly every day I wander down to 'the briney' for a dip. 

I am a 'surfer chick', who grew up on the West Coast, but I love the ocean whether there is surf or not.

Some say that the Manukau Harbour is all mud flats.  Well, check out the SAND in these pix.

Great British Car Rally

In one month exactly, TH and I will be flagged away from Auckland on the Great British Car Rally, arriving in Christchurch five days later.

Along with around 250 other British cars, TH and I will be motoring in style in our 1966 Rover P5, Mk3 Coupe, 3 litre.

This rally last took place in 1997 and was called THE LINK All Briish Car Rally.  TH, the Rover and me (Eventful Woman) were part of that great event.  We were provided with really posh passports, which featured a photo of our Rover.

We had our passport stamped at every stop.

The passport cover was styled to look like a British passport (in the 'glory days' before it became a red Eurozone passport).  Wonder if we'll get something like this, this time?

Amazing Waipu Grand Pageant

TH and I were there with 3,000 others at the amazing Waipu Grand Pageant on Saturday 12 January.  This is a ten yearly momentous outdoor extravaganza and was a breath-taking spectacle of light, sound, drama, magic, wonder.

Toasting in 2013

Happy New Year!

TH and I cracked the top off a 12-year-old Chivas Regal. We're normally single malt fans, but we were bowled over by the fantastic taste of this drop.

Thanks to the fab H (xx) for this divine gift.

Cheers everyone! Here's to an equally fantastic 2013.
