MILFORD BEACH

Here's a few photos from yesterday's visit to Milford Beach:

Like a twit, I wore a long dress to the beach! So had to hike it up constantly... the water was lovely too. It was low tide so not as pretty as it could have been... but still a nice beach.


ABOVE: this house was for sale... right on the beach... *drool*... Stew and I so want to end up living by the beach!


ABOVE AND BELOW: a card I made yesterday... it's for a birthday coming up soon....I put Stew's cellphone in the picture so you can see the card size.
Today... well the 'fix it' guy is coming back to fix our carpet... and put the doors back on etc. And I am going to leave Stew and the kids to it and go to Sylvia Park to meet up with a blogger who is up from Wellington ( got that wrong, she's from Tauranga)! Neat eh? Just me, no kids! AWESOME.

ABOVE: Natalie from Tauranga.. what a lovely girl! We hit it off ... must have! We yakked for almost 4 hours! I WAS in the photo, but it was a freaking awful one of me, so I cropped me out! lol.... we can all take a bloody awful photo sometimes eh? Natalie looks lovely though, which is nice.

Now that I am home it's time to do some housework... yaaaa. Can you just hear the enthusiasm?

ONWARD.....

RATS!.... OK now I don't want to live at Milford Beach! (read Tracy's comment) lol

End of Day: another day done and dusted. Had a lazy afternoon doing... NOTHING! Yes, I can do nothing sometimes! nite nite.

    I think you are officially a cardy-ologist! Making cards from the heart! Did you find out how much that house is? I will win lotto, buy it and you can come and visit ha ha!

  8. If it is any consolation, you wouldn't want to live near Milford Beach, they have a major rat problem at the moment.

  14. Looks like the water is warm there. Even in the summer, your feet would freeze after a second in our freezing Pacific Ocean.
