Happy New Year from Waiheke, New Zealand! I hope you've had a fabulous start to the year :) We have spent the last eight days since Christmas out on our section at Waiheke Island, as many will know, my favourite place in the world. Thankfully we had amazing weather leading up to New Year's Eve, but since then rain has been bucketing down all over the upper North Island - so we took the opportunity to nip back to Auckland for an over-nighter to get some washing done and dry off a bit. Shortly we're heading back out, but before we do I just wanted to share some pics from the last few days spent roaming the island via bush walks, at Oneroa Beach with my sister and her lovely family (and their boat!), and at Man-O-War Bay. The magical thing about the island is the changes in scenery from bush to beach to farm to vineyard - each part equally beautiful but different. OK, I'm going to do us a favour and stop myself waxing lyrical...if you fancy seeing more pics just click on the recipe link!
