piha beach

Lonnie and I love to go for Sunday drives. Lonnie drives while I sit back and relax and enjoy the view. This past Sunday we picked a spot on the map about 45 mins away and jumped in the car with the kids. We were amazed at what we found.

The road was often a jungle covered tunnel and the views from the mountains were fabulous.

and then we came around the corner and saw this....

Piha beach...

the beach was covered in soft black sand.

It didn't take Max long to get wet.

We missed the World Junior Surfing Championship by a couple of hours but there were still plenty of surfers.
