It looks like I have taken a totally unscheduled break from blogging. It wasn’t really my purpose to do so, but things have been happening in the family this last week and I never felt much like writing a blog.
We are all okay, and the issues are all things that can be sorted out and worked through. Every family seems to have rough patches at times – I mean, look at England’s royal family, even they are not exempt!
It was a lovely morning today, weather wise, so I made a spur of the moment decision and headed over the Kaimai Range to Mt Maunganui and Papamoa. I miss the beach, with its white sand and blue ocean, but there seemed to be so many people around that it was difficult to sit and enjoy nature.
I did take a walk along the harbour beach though, paddling in the clear water until I saw the dark shadow of a stingray glide past about two metres away from me. I know they are plentiful in the harbour but I haven’t seen one so close to shore before.
It was nice to be able to get out for the day – something I really appreciate that we can still do, unlike so many places around the world.
I hope everyone is keeping well,
